Achana Puran Singh is in talks to replace Navjot on the show, the entertainment portal quoted a source as saying.
While strong reactions have been coming in from various quarters regarding the attack, Sidhu’s remark on the tragic incident did not go down well with a large section of people.
“It is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished. For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual?,” he had said.
The attack was claimed by a terror group called Jaish-e-Mohammed, which is believed to be having its base in Pakistan.
Sidhu had triggered a controversy last year also when he attended Pakistan Prime Minister, Imran Khan’s swearing-in-ceremony for which he was criticised for hugging Pakistan Army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa as well.
