Mumbai: Amidst the uproar against Tanmay Bhatt and AIB's spoof video titled 'Sachin vs Lata Civil War,' that had jokes about Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar, actress Sonam Kapoor has come out in their support.
Unlike Bollywood personalities like Anupam Kher, Riteish Deshmukh and others, the 30-year-old actress took to her Twitter handle to share a series of tweets, saying the video has been misinterpreted and the group does nothing to "offend" people.
Don't you guys think there are issues that are more important than @thetanmay snapchat jokes??? I'm in shock with this over reaction!— Sonam Kapoor (@sonamakapoor) May 31, 2016
Film wing of Raj Thackeray-led MNS, Chitrapat Sena, has also urged the police to block the video and its link online. The MNS also threatened to beat him up.
Its president Ameya Khopkar, who went to the cyber cell of Mumbai police to lodge the complaint, said "The MNS will not allow Tanmay Bhat to conduct shows in the city, and police should arrest him as quickly as possible."
Taking strong exception to the video, the Shiv Sena asked Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to take stringent action against AIB and Bhat for allegedly seeking to vitiate social harmony by mocking the national legends.
Sena leader Neelam Gorhe wrote to Fadnavis seeking action against those behind the video which she said was made by people with "deranged mentality".
