The All India Bakchod’s Tanmay Bhat’s spoof on Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar seems to have backfired very badly.
While condemnation for the disgusting display of drollery aimed at the two Bharat Ratnas has grown from every quarter, news now comes of Maharashtra’s Raj Thackeray’s MNS filing an FIR against Tanmay Bhat and also issuing a diktat that Bhat be not allowed to perform anywhere in Maharashtra.
Expressing deep disgust at the desecration of the two legends Pahlaj Nihalani says, “Banning this character (Tanmay Bhat) in Maharashatra 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!”
Madhur Bhandarkar expresses disgust and disbelief at the AIB antic. “I couldn’t see the whole video when someone sent it to me. I was sickened . To say things like ‘You are 500 years old you should die’ to Lataji ….chee chee! Who finds this funny? It’s downright morbid. Criminal cases must be registered against those who have done this.”...
