New Delhi, Feb 20: After the campaign on social media to boycott Kapil Sharma show, that started trending soon after Navjot Singh Sidhu's comment on Pulwama terror attack, Sony Entertainment on Wednesday refused that the show is not going to be banned.

A source close to the channel said,'There is no boycott of 'The Kapil Sharma Show' and the shooting is still going on.' However, the source refused to comment on whether Mr Sidhu will be re-joining the show .

'Actor Archana Puran Singh is currently shooting for the episodes of 'The Kapil Sharma Show',' the sources added. While condemning the terror attack, Mr Sidhu had said that one could not blame the entire nation for acts by a handful of people.

'The terror attack is a cowardly and dastardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished. For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual?" Sidhu had said.

The comments stirred a controversy with many on the social media demanding his removal from the show and soon #boycottsidhu and #boycottkapilsharmashow started trending on Twitter.

During an event in Chandigarh, Kapil reportedly said,'banning or sacking Sidhu from the show is not a solution', which within a few hours, led to the campaign #BoycottKapilSharma. (UNI)
