Abhijit in his post said, “A stand-up bit takes a lot of effort to write and fine-tune. As comedians, we strive for originality and after having made all the effort in coming out with a unique observation and building a joke around it, when something like this happens, it just deflates you.”

However, Kapil Sharma didn’t utter a word on this accusation. Kiku Sharda came in open to defense him. He said, “We are a big team and brainstorm before every episode. Someone cracked this joke and we made it a part of the script. It is possible that the same idea came to our writers, or maybe they had heard it somewhere.”
Kiku further added ,”It is not that we do not use popular SMS or Whatsapp jokes. We can’t keep track of who cracked what joke and when” he added.
