The famed comedian is now being invited in various parts of the world to show his comic skills. Recently he did a show in Kuwait that was simply house-packed. Well, Kapil Sharma is now under biggest troubles. Not only is he under troubles but also the channel ‘Colors’ too lands into trouble because of his joke that he cracked on pregnant women. This joke has led him to receive a show-cause notice.

Kapil cracks lots of jokes on the audiences on his show and these jokes are what are taken lightly and as humor by the audiences. These jokes make the show and let the viewers enjoy the program. In short, due to these jokes, his show is popular. But on the episode of January 5th this month, Kapil cracked joke on the miserable condition of the Indian roads. While talking on the pothole roads, he mentioned that one of the advantages of these pothole roads in India is that while traveling on these roads, a poor pregnant woman pops out the kid.

Well, this joke did not go well with an NGO working for the women rights. The NGO then filed a complaint against Kapil Sharma and the channel with Maharastra State Commission. Now this commission has issued the show-cause notice to both Kapil and the channel demanding the explanation on this joke within 15 days’ time.
