AR Rahman reacted to Will Smith's Oscar slapgate at that famous Kapil Sharma Show and defended the actor saying that he is a nice person and that sometimes such things happen.

The Kapil Sharma Show featured Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui along with AR Rahman and Ahmed Khan. They appeared on the show to promote their upcoming film, Heropanti 2. The team spoke about a lot of things, from personal to professional. In one of the segments, Rahman even reacted to Will Smith’s slap gate controversy.

The musician was then asked about the controversial incident, to which he replied, “He is a sweetheart. He is a nice person. Sometimes such things happen.” The Will Smith slapgate incident at the Oscars this year was one of the most controversial events in the history of the award ceremony. The actor, who later walked out with an Oscar in the Best Actor category for King Richard slapped Chris Rock after the comedian had cracked a joke involving his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Following this, he was issued a ban from Oscars for ten years. The rumors also state that things are not well between Will and Jada post the incident and that the latter is contemplating a divorce. It is also being said that this divorce might cost Will 350 million dollars.
