Actor Akshay Kumar and comedian Kapil Sharma appear to be at odds, and the promotion of Sajid Nadiadwala's upcoming Kumar-starrer Bachchan Pandey, which is set for a Holi release on March 18th, appears to have been caught in the middle. 

According to reports, it all began when Kumar appeared on Kapil Sharma's show recently. The comedian inquired about an interview he had with a "famous personality" in which Kumar inquired about his favourite way to eat mangoes. He was allegedly referring to an interview the actor had with Prime Minister Modi a few years ago. The clip of this exchange between the two is what led to the friction.

Kumar then challenged Kapil to name the celebrity in the video, but the comedian quickly changed the subject. According to the report, after the shoot, the actor requested that the channel not air this segment because it made fun of the Prime Minister's office.

Akshay took all of Kapil’s jokes head-on but the dig on the PM interview seemed to mock the dignity of such a high office. So Akshay requested the channel to not air that question. It is a right of the guests to make such a request as the show is not live. The channel agreed, but the said scene was leaked on the internet soon after,” says the source. It adds, “It was a breach of trust on the part of someone in Kapil’s team, and Akshay sought a clarification before he appears on the show again.

The shoot of the episode starring the cast of Bachchan Pandey, directed by Farhad Samji and co-starring Kriti Sanon and Jacqueline Fernandez, has been postponed for the time being due to the lack of a response from Kapil. 

Hope all is sorted between Akshay and Kapil soon, otherwise the film’s promotion suffers, and the fans of the banter between the two, continue to miss the fun.
