Last week on The Kapil Sharma Show, Vishwas spoke about campaigning: "During elections, politicians in our locality face much difficulty. You have to address your former girlfriend's husband as "Jija Ji", tell him that 'you have already taken my object, now give me your vote'."

The complaint was filed by a West Delhi homemaker, whose daughter apparently asked her if she would become an "object" after marriage.

Three years ago, in January 2014, Vishwas was slammed after he talked about Kerala's "kali-peeli" (dark-skinned) nurses: "Earlier nurses used to come from Kerala, kali-peeli, one would naturally feel like calling them sisters."
