As mentioned in Hindustan Times, A video clip was viral from the show when Akshay Kumar had last time appeared on The Kapil Sharma show and the comedian/host asked him about an interview he did with a ‘famous personality’ (indicating PM Narendra Modi). In this video, Akshay goes on challenging Kapil to openly name the personality, while the comedian diverts the subject. The actor had requested the channel to not air this portion as it made light of the PM’s office. The channel agreed, but the said scene was leaked on the internet soon.
