However, Sahil Dawra, general manager of Studio Xo Bar, told local reporters that two men from Bajrang Dal came and threatened to disrupt the show. “We have decided to cancel as we don’t want trouble. I do not want any trouble,” he was quoted as saying.

The club also deleted its Instagram post that was promoting the show. “I spoke with the owners, police, and the comedian, and I don’t want any risk to my company and organization,” the club manager was quoted as saying by The Indian Express, “We have not lodged any complaint with the police. We have written to the ticketing company and initiated the process to cancel the show.”

Kunal Kamra tweets ‘UPSC question for authorities’

Meanwhile, responding to the demands for cancellation, questioning the allegations, Kamra put out a tweet saying those who claim he makes fun of “our culture” and “our deities” have no evidence. “So what should the authorities do?” he asked in the tweet. He did not respond to direct queries though, the NDTV report added.
