New Delhi: The newly-aired Kapil Sharma Show has landed right in controversy for its alleged derogatory portrayal of a relationship between a nurse and a doctor. Nursing staff from various medical colleges and hospitals staged protests against the show on Tuesday.
Rochelle Rao, who plays a nurse in the famed comedy sketch, adorns a shorter-than-normal uniform and squabbles with the doctor for his attention. Kapil Sharma plays the doctor who constantly delivers short and critical one-liners against the nurse.
This is not the first time Kapil Sharma’s show has been called out for its alleged vulgar and derogatory portrayal of women. The stand-up-comedian-turned-talk-show-host has been criticised for instilling vulgar jokes in all his comic portrayals of women.
The nursing staff from various medical colleges and hospitals staged protest at Guru Nanak Dev Hospital in Amritsar. They also raised slogans against Cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu for being part of the show.
