In the meantime, we hear that Shiv Sena is apparently fuming over Kapil's decision to perform for Peshawar Jalmi. A leader of the party was quoted saying that comedian actor has been playing with the pride of the country by performing for Pakistani cricket team members. "This is absolutely wrong and we are against it," the leader added.
