When Kapil Sharma was just 22, his father, Jeetendra Kumar Punj passed away, and the responsibility of running the family transferred to his shoulders. The youngster didn't turn his back on the tragic situation and started working at a PCO booth on a salary of Rs. 500. After working for a while at the PCO booth, Kapil joined a textile mill where he used to earn Rs. 900 per month.

The tweet could be read as "I am paying 15 crores income tax from last five years and still I have to pay 5 lacs to bribe to BMC office for making my office Narendra Modi, Yeh hain aapke achhe din?"

However, later it was revealed that Kapil Sharma made that tweet in a drunken state but the damage was done by then.

Saurav's tweet erupted a huge controversy as the entire Gurjar community started bashing Kapil and asked him to apologise to the wrestler. His tweet could be read as:

"Aap ache insaan hain @KapilSharmaK9 logo ko hasate hain lekin aap aur aapki team ye jhute comments kaisey dikha sakti hain kisi ki social media par. This is not acceptable. Jai Hind #TheKapilSharmaShow”.
