MUMBAI: A day after Indian comedian Kapil Sharma confirmed ouster of Navjot Singh Sidhu from his show “The Kapil Sharma Show”, Indian media has reported that Bollywood actor Salman Khan was behind this ouster.

The Kapil Sharma Show had dismissed Punjab cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu from the show after his remarks on the Pulwama terror attack.

The former cricketer-turned-politician had said that terrorism has no religion, no nation, which created a huge outrage on social media.

Salman Khan is part of The Kapil Sharma Show’s production team and the show is being produced by Kapil Sharma's production house K9 Films in association with Salman Khan Films (SKF).

Indian media citing sources reported Navjot Singh Sidhu's removal was approved by Salman Khan.

Also, Salman Khan had reportedly asked his production house to replace Atif Aslam, who was roped in to sing a song in 'Notebook'.

According to reports, the song, Pakistani artist sang for the film, will again be recorded with a new singer. While there's no official announcement made by anyone associated with the production. The decision came after some of the Hindu extremists voiced to ban Pakistani artists in the Indian film industry after the Pulwama attack.
