While Tusshar Kapoor
might be famous for his comedies, this time he ain't laughing! Tusshar is very upset with a show called ' Comedy Circus
'. The show had made a spoof on Jeetendra
imitating his Jumping Jack nickname and also his trademark white shoes. Tusshar says that the spoof had characters that imitated the mannerisms of both Ekta as well as him.
Tusshar revealed that the family was prompted to send a legal notice to the show as they thought that they were ridiculed in it. The actor adds that he was also invited to be a guest on it but he turned them down after he saw the episode and felt that the serial had crossed the line in the name of harmless fun. Tusshar says, "It is true that we had to send them a legal notice because we thought that what was done on the show was not right.
There were actors who presented skits that had characters which spoofed my dad, my sister and me. You can make fun but such coarse fun is not done. It was like an attack on my entire family and I was shocked to see the reaction of the judges who are also incidentally from the same fraternity. They were laughing their guts out instead of telling them that a line needs to be drawn for everything."
He adds, "I was even asked by the comedy show to be a guest on it for some finale episode but I had to turn them down as I could not participate in something that attacked my family. We were very offended!"
