Since Archana Puran Singh temporarily replaced Navjot Singh Sidhu in Sony Entertainment Television’s popular ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, rumours emerged of Archana taking over permanently. However this is untrue.

Denying such rumours, Singh told PinkVilla, “I cannot even think of replacing Sidhuji. Whenever I plan to shoot, I always plan with Sidhuji because I feel he is lucky for me. There is no truth to this news. This has happened before. For example, we shot for Sairat episode, Sidhu sir was not there, even when Jackie Chan came, we called Raveena ji for the episode. I read this news but the truth is that I haven’t actually spoken to Sidhu sir. The news is absolutely false.”

Sidhu is reportedly recovering from fever and is expected to return this week. Previously, the show relied on a cut-out of Navjot in his iconic chair but this time they attempted the stint with Archana being brought in.
