Raising his voice against corruption against some of the BMC officers seeking a bribe of Rs 5 lakh, famous commedian Kapil Sharma had to clarify his position on the issue.
The commedian had to finally take on to social media to express his disgust that the whole incident has been perceived by the media or the people in general in a wrong way and that unnecessary cintroversies were drawn into.
On Friday Spetember 9, Kapil took to twitter about the bribery he has been asked to pay to certain unnamed BMC officials to build his office at Versova which caught the attention of not only his fans and followers but also the media in general.
I just voiced my concern on the corruption I faced with certain individuals..Its No blame on any political party be it BJP, MNS or ShivSena

The matter became more serious because in his angst he tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with him asking whether this is the ‘achche din’ he promised.
“I have only expressed my concerns. However, it has taken a shape of an unnecessary controversy. My space is on the entertainment platform and not on the news platform. I am not a part of any political organisation and nor do I intend to be,” Kapil said in a statement here.
“I have utmost respect for the honourable Prime Minister and Governments, both Union and State, its agencies and Statutory Bodies. I am a law abiding citizen and shall act as legally advised. This was my anger against corruption which I expressed on twitter,” the popular comedian added.
The BMC has claimed that the artist had defied norms not only in his Versova office building, but also in his apartment in suburban Goregaon.
