Mumbai, Jan 23 (IANS) Actor Kiku Sharda, who was earlier arrested for lampooning a religious leader, has thanked the entertainment industry for supporting him. He says he is “proud of the industry”.

Kiku, best known for playing Palak on TV show “Comedy Nights with Kapil”, was arrested from the set of the comedy show on January 13, after a complaint filed by Dera Sacha Sauda sect follower Uday Singh.
