Kapil Sharma is in news again thanks to his abusive rant on Twitter. The comedian on Friday asked people to focus on bigger issues than targeting Salman Khan with their negativity. Later, these tweets were deleted. On Saturday again the comedian targeted journalist Vickey Lalwani for tarnishing his image. The Family Time With Kapil Sharma host also filed a police report against Lalwani and his ex-managers for trying to extort money from him. “Some people just want to defame you for few bucks but it will take ages to make a stand against the wrong,” he wrote on Twitter with a copy of the complaint.

Bigg Boss 11 winner Shilpa Shinde has come out in support of the comedian and asked people to give him space. In a post, Shinde wrote, “Abusing someone is certainly incorrect, but he must be really in a bad situation. Every artist knows #vickylalwani kitne torture karke sawal karte hai. Request to all artist, please share your experience. Jago artist jago!! Kuch toh problem jarur hai warna itna talented artist ye sab nahi bol/kar sakta. We all are human, galati kise nahi hoti. Gali kaun nahi deta. Chadhte suraj ko sab salaam karte hai! Pichhla respect karke just forgive him. Very humble request to all media people, we need to give him some space.”

Shilpa isn’t the only one who has stood in support of Kapil. Over the weekend, filmmaker Hansal Mehta has slammed the journalist and blamed both the parties for the ongoing controversy. Hansal took to Twitter and wrote, “Kapil Sharma’s language with the journalist was despicable but also a sad reflection of his possible state of mind. The journalist in question is no ethical saint either. He has harassed many people, spun many malicious stories & has created stories with his misleading questions.”
