In coming episodes of Kapil Sharma’s show, Indian Cricketers will crack the stage. They will chat with the comedian-host. It promises a ton of fun and laughter.
The official handle of Sony Entertainment Television shares a quick glimpse of the episode. The sportsmen compete in some games and exchange anecdotes with Sharma and his team. However, the highlight of the promo has to be when Sudesh Lehri cracked a joke on Archana Puran Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu.
At one point in time, Sudesh says Archana has to be his favorite cricketer. Kapil goes on to remind him that Archana does not play cricket professionally. When Kapil said, “Ye kaha cricket khelti? (But she does not play cricket),” Sudesh quickly responded “Nai khelti? To phir Sidhu ji ko kaise out kar diya?” (You don’t play the game? But then how did you manage to dismiss Navjot Singh Sidhu with that great delivery?).
The show has a running gig on the incident, where time and again Kapil brings up the subject to evoke some kind of fun response from Puran Singh and the audience.
Prithvi Shaw also spoke about how he was only 3 when his father had admitted him to a cricket academy. “I started with plastic balls and then after 1-1.5 years, I moved on to tennis balls.” He accepted that he didn’t understand the game at that age.
“No, I did not understand the game. Whatever dad used to make me do, I used to follow.I started to understand the game when I was 6 or 7 years old. My dad had a liking for cricket. At that time, there was only one television set in our locality so my dad used to take me there. He was a big fan of Sachin Sir Sachin Tendulkar who was at the peak at that time, he still is even today. So, when he used to get bowled, he would go back home. He had such passion for cricket and so he wanted that I play cricket only.”
