Mumbai: The women's wing of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) staged a protest here on Monday against comedian Tanmay Bhatt for making fun of legends Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar in a Facebook post.

The agitated women raised slogans denouncing the AIB comedian and burnt his effigy.

 

The AIB comedian drew flak from the politicians as well as several Bollywood celebrities, including actors Anupam Kher and Riteish Deshmukh, for insulting the diva of Indian film music and the master blaster.

The Shiv Sena has dubbed Bhatt's video on Facebook titled 'Sachin vs Lata Civil War' as a 'desperate publicity stunt' and said it is a clear violation of freedom of speech.

The Mumbai Police Special Branch is inquiring into the complaint lodged against the AIB comedian for posting an irreverent video of a mock conversation between the singing legend and master blaster.
