Speculations were rife that when the NGO came to know about the big fat Punjabi wedding, the officials got in touch with Kapil. A source said, “When they told Kapil about their cause, he said yes without thinking twice. He told them to take the food from all his functions including the reception in Amritsar and distribute it.” Also Read - Kapil Sharma Body-Shames Twitter User For Saying He'd be Arrested Soon Like Bharti Singh in Drugs Case
The founder of The NGO was quoted as saying, “Mr. Kapil is setting an example for others to follow by donating excess food from his big day! This will surely create a much-needed awareness for the cause and will motivate others to follow suit. The thought of Feeding India was born in a wedding, and seeing Kapil donate all extra food to people instead of letting it go to waste is heartening. I am pleased to see him that the person who makes the India country smile and laugh took this opportunity to make others in need smile too. Respect. I hope Kapil’s act wakes up the country to not waste food and donate extra from weddings.” Also Read - Kapil Sharma And Ginni Chatrath to be Parents Again, Comedian's Wife in Her Last Trimester
