Things are surely not going the right way for Kapil Sharma and his show. This time, Kiku Sharda has been accused of plagiarism in the 100th episode of the hit comedy show, which was telecasted on Sunday night.
While Kapil Sharma’s fight with Sunil Grover is still a talk of the town, a new problem has emerged for the comedian star. As earlier we reported, a stand-up comedian Abijit Ganguly has accused the makers of “The Kapil Sharma Show” of plagiarism. The stand-up comedian took to Facebook and wrote a long post about how Kiku Sharda copied a segment of a joke from his original show on the 100th episode of “The Kapil Sharma Show”.
Comedian Abijit Ganguly has accused Kiku Sharda of copying his joke where Kiku jokes about younger siblings being better fast bowlers only because elder siblings never allow them to bat. This joke is said to be a straight lift of English stand-up comic Abijit Ganguly’s joke from a few years ago.
When TOI spoke to Kiku Sharda over the issue, he said, “We are a big team and brainstorm before every episode. Someone cracked this joke and we made it a part of the script. It is possible that the same idea came to our writers, or maybe they had heard it somewhere. It is not that we do not use popular SMS or Whatsapp jokes. We can’t keep track of who cracked what joke and when.”
Meanwhile, check out what Abijit Ganguly wrote in his lengthy Facebook post regarding the plagiarism.
