Why did Kapil Sharma refuse to promote ‘Hate Story 2′ on his show?

While the trailers of Vikram Bhatt’s Hate Story 2 have been creating a storm all over the internet since a while now, popular comedian Kapil Sharma has apparently refused to promote the film on his show, Comedy Nights With Kapil. Rumour has it that  Kapil Sharma has apparently disapproved to promote Jay Bhanushali and Surveen Chawla’s upcoming erotic thriller.

As far as one knows, since Comedy Nights With Kapil is more of a family- oriented show, Kapil felt that the subject of the movie was too X- rated and bold.

Since Comedy Nights With Kapil  has been a popular platform for promoting movies, the makers of Hate Story 2 felt that felt that it was a good way to promote their film on television’s most sought- after show. However, they were in a state of shock when their request was turned down. However, this isn’t the first time that Kapil Sharma has refused to promote movies with sexual content on the show. It was only in last December, when Kapil was not too keen on inviting pornstar Sunny Leone for promoting her film Jackpot on his show.

This decision grabbed a great deal of attention from Bollywood as celebrity actors like Shah Rukh Khan had shown his willingness to work with the adult film star, Sunny Leone. Kapil, later changed his mind and finally producer Ekta Kapoor and Sunny were allowed to promote Ragini MMS 2 on the show.

Hate Story 2 is slated to hit the silver screens on July 18 2014. It is a sequel of Paoli Dam and Gulshan Deviah starrer Hate Story that released in 2012.
