Sidhu is known for his sharp tongue and strong comments. He never shies away from taking questions. However, his views have also landed him in trouble in recent times, especially his comment on Pakistan's role in Pulwama terror attack. Sidhu in the past has also commented on Punjab chief minister and senior Congress leader Captain Amarinder Singh, due to which he has had to face opposition from his own party.
