Tanmay Bhatt’s snapchat video on Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar is more controversial than the AIB Roast itself. The standup comedian who is also the member of AIB has got less supporters this time as almost all the people including Bollywood seem to be against him and his latest antic. We have many anti Tanmay tweets one including Ritesh Deshmukh.
Yes, the comedian is getting a lot of flak for his Snapchat video where he is spoofing the God of cricket (as we say) Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar, the legendary singer. We too didn’t like the age and death joke by him on Lata Mangeshkar. However, is that enough to get the comedian arrested and even banned? We don’t think so!
MNS Wants Tanmay Bhatt Behind Bars
Yes, political party MNS (Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) do not think on the same lines and and they are trying their best to put him behind bars. Interestingly, supporting the party members in their so called ‘struggle’ we have the Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani.
This is what he quoted during an interview with NDTV,
‘Tanmay Bhat is a repeat offender, he deserves no freedom. He has insulted the mother of music.’
Later, when speaking to the leading daily, Dainik Bhaskar, he said,
‘Banning this character in Maharashtra is not enough. Lataji and Sachin Tendulkar don’t belong to Maharashtra only, they are a part of every Indian’s life. This fellow has insulted every Indian. He should be arrested immediately without any further delay and dealt with severely. Doing this two institutions who have devoted their lives to doing our country proud…shame!’
This act by Pahlaj Nihalani surely gave Tanmay Bhatt some supporters especially the anti-censor board people.
Lata Mangeshkar Too Reacted On The Video
While, the video offended many citizens, VIPs and politicians and they have even filed suits against the AIB comedian, both the afflicted celebs didn’t speak about it. However, Lata Mangeshkar finally gave a reaction!
An online portal got in touch with Lataji and asked her views on the video, the legendary singer had a very polite reply to it.
“I have not seen the video, neither do I have any inclination to do so. I will not comment about it,” said the veteran singer.
Lata Mangeshkar Is Upset
The report stated that though Lata Mangeshkar gave a safe comment, sources close to her revealed that she was in fact, extremely upset with the video by Tanmay. The singer kept it simple and gave a polite reply to the comedian. Interestingly, at the end of the call, she did mention, “By the way, I don’t know who is Tanmay Bhat.”
Now that is simply a blow to the standup comedian. However, we are sure he cares little. However, this time, Tanmay Bhat is in huge trouble as not many people are in his favor and there are plenty of them who got offended by his video.
We just have one thing to say to Tanmay Bhatt – “It is perfectly okay to subject people to humour, even legends like Lata Mangeshkar & Sachin Tendulkar. But please show us humour in your video next time not just abuse!”
