From objectification of women to sexism to body shaming – the Comedy Nights with Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show have cracked jokes with every regressive theme possible under the sun! It is quite disgusting how the entire show functions on the problematic themes under the disguise of humour. The show makers masked the regressive and problematic themes as ‘fun’ & ‘humour’ and the trick has worked for years.
Here are 10 instances of Kapil Sharma saying offensive things on and off air to give you a glimpse into what his comedy looks like and why it needs to stop.
1. Objectification of Women: When he called Sunny Leone “Italian pasta with white sauce”
Yes, in one of the episodes from Kapil Sharma Show 2, Kapil went on to call Sunny Leone “Italian pasta with white sauce”. In fact, he also sang, “Baar Baar Dekho, hazaar baar dekho, yeh dekhne ki cheez hai”! In fact, he kept commenting on how beautiful she is and that she is “teen baccho ki ma”. Throughout the show he didn’t bother to ask her anything about work.
2. Preaching Stalking As Cool
When he gave a 1-minute lecture on how men can be stalkers and then proceeded to flirt with an audience member on the show.
i never NEVER found kapil sharma funny. that dude was problematic as fuck & i don’t really know why people thought his show was ‘funny’ bec it was just him body shaming & treating the cast like absolute shit 🙂
Sumona Chakravarti: Tum paise deke ye film kar rahe ho?
Kapil: Kya karein? Ladke hain, paise hi de sakte hain.
The Kapil Sharma Show has always been about mocking someone to make people laugh. Its highly transphobic (imo, correct me if im wrong), sexist and body shames people and all of us have laughed at those jokes at some point. Why is everyone suddenly realising how problematic it is?
4. Shameless Sexist Jokes: Shameless Kapil Sharma indulging in misogynistic jokes through out the show!
On the show, Kapil Sharma would never speak to his wife with respect. He would pass insulting comments all the time, asking her to go back to the kitchen instead of coming on stage. We understand it’s a comedy show, but must misogyny remain an inherent part of a comedy? Why don’t we see his wife insulting him back with twice as much ‘comic’ venom?
5. Obscene double meaning vulgar Jokes:
When he welcomed Nora Fatehi with lines, “Bhookha aadmi jo hota hai, use 2 roti dikha do toh uski aankhon mein aansu aa jaate hain”. Which translates to, “When someone is hungry, even the sight of two chapatis brings tears to their eyes”.
6. Obscene double meaning vulgar Jokes:
On a supposedly family show, he asked Riteish Deshmukh, “Jab aadmi chota hota hai toh uska sab kuch chota ho jaata hai?”.
7. When he asked Bipasha Basu if he can sleep in the same room as hers to comfort her if she has a nightmare.
8. Massive Body-shaming: He keeps joking about Archana Puran Singh’s physique, and all the comments are so insulting. The same has been pointed out by many people before.
I committed a sin by staying glued to the TV for 5mins, just to watch John Abraham on Kapil Sharma’s show, bt these degraded humans are still garnering TRPs by shaming and joking abt ArchanaPuranSingh’s physique on that show. It is 2019, where is the intellect, how is this Okay?
9. When he blatantly body-shamed a person on social media.
10. Massive Body-Shaming & Sexist Jokes:
In the initial episodes, Sumona Chakraborty (his on-screen wife) used to be the victim of body shaming when fellow comedians would make fun of her lips, and the way she speaks. Later, another character was introduced and was made fun of because of her weight. The famous character, Bua, played by Upasana Bharadwaj, was also mocked a lot because of being unmarried at her age.
Misogynist jokes, fat shaming, body shaming, BEAUTY standards- All not so funny things are available in the name of Kapil Sharma Show. The dangerous part is people along with their families watch that show & laugh. It’s beyond being problematic.
