Comedians nowadays have strange opinions. After many were called out recently for anti-Hindu, hateful, and often abusive statements, another comedian has posted a bizarre video in which he wishes actress Kangana Ranaut gets infected with the coronavirus.
Siddharth Dudeja, a comedian from Mumbai, uploaded a video on his Instagram profile in which he said, “Guys, nepotism is a big problem in Bollywood. Like Amitabh gave COVID to Abhishek, Aaradhya and Aishwarya… when we all know that Kangana deserves it the most.”

Madhur tagged Kangana Ranaut’s team handle and informed them about the video. Dudeja’s video attracted a sharp reaction from netizens.
Many users on social media have condemned such tasteless comments being peddled as ‘comedy’.
This is horrible. What’s wrong with our Comedy Industry? It filled with filth. Some comics are at best only moderatley hypocritical and at worst, well we’ll have to wait and see…— Ujwala Karnataki 🇮🇳 (@u_karnataki) July 22, 2020
Some users also stated that soon, the comedian will also start playing the victim card claiming that he is being threatened by the ‘IT cell’ and he is in depression.
Now wait and watch. He will come and play victim card.— Dhruv Agrawal (@dhruv_agrawal55) July 22, 2020

Kangana’s interview to Republic TV
Since Kangana Ranaut gave an interview on Republic TV and raised questions against nepotism and the Bollywood mafia, many segments of the industry have increased attacks against her. Kangana also raised several questions around Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. From Anurag Kashyap to Bhatts, Kangana’s statements have stirred up many bigwigs who are now either openly, or through their minions, trying to dismiss the allegations.
