Mumbai: Kapil Sharma has landed in trouble once again but this time over a joke he cracked on his show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’.

In one of the recent episodes, the star comedian joked about a pregnant woman delivering a baby while traveling on a road full of potholes, which women activists felt was derogatory and insulted womanhood.

Bhartiya Muslim Mahila Andolan and Kaydeshir Wagne, two NGOs have lodged a complaint with the Maharashtra State Women`s Commission seeking legal action against Sharma and the channel airing the popular show.

As a producer, Sharma had faced turbulent times when the set of his show was reduced to ashes following a short circuit. Soon after he built a new set, one of the prominent and popular characters from his show, Gutthi (played by Sunil Grover), chose to quit the show, stirring a massive controversy.

‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ became a super-hit show soon after its launch. Despite all the troubles, Sharma’s CNWK has topped TRP charts and continues to impress TV viewers in India and across the globe.
