It all began last week when Shekhar tweeted on a microblogging website, "I think Anil Kapoor could replace me as judge on India's Got Talent, be as compassionate towards the acts." An angry Anil Kapoor who is in Vancouver reacts, "It's not true! I have never heard about this. Please check with Shekhar why he's giving wrong information on his tweet."
Kapur later clarified, "It was a misunderstanding. I received many tweets saying that I was very compassionate and nobody could replace me on the show so I mentioned Anil's name. I felt he is a compassionate person and a good guy to replace me."
