It looks like there's no end to troubles for Navjot Singh Sidhu over his comments on Pulwama attack in which 45 CRPF jawans were martyred in a dastardly suicide bomb attack.

Irked Twitter users had been demanding Sidhu's ouster from The Kapil Sharma Show and Federation of Western India Cine Employees have decided to ban the former cricketer from entering in Mumbai's Film City premises.

This is the same federation that had banned Pakistani artists from working in India and the release of Indian films in Pakistan.

After Sidhu said that India cannot blame an entire country (Pakistan) for the actions of a few, the former cricketer-turned-politician-turned-celebrity was fired from the famous ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.

The statement of Sidhu was enough to hurt the sentiments of Indian and trollers even bashed him for supporting Pakistan and his friend from cricket and PM of Pakistan, Imran Khan.

The channel was expected to have relented to the same and have fired the comedian. Recent speculations have it that Archana Puran Singh will be replacing the cricketer turned politician and her recent posts on Twitter too hint at the same.

Several celebrities, including Anupam Kher and Manoj Joshi, have criticised Sidhu for his comments, calling it rubbish and a political gimmick. Meanwhile, Kapil Sharma has reacted to the controversy, saying that though he agreed with the government’s decision on the situation, firing Sidhu was not the right way to deal with the problem.
