In an interview he said, “For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished.”
His statement didn't go well with many and #BoycottSidhu started trending on Twitter. Netizens demanded him to be sacked from the Kapil Sharma show and rest is history. Reportedly, producer Salman Khan has been trying to bring back Sidhu but there is no confirmation on the same.
