A while back, comedian group All India Bakchod made headlines with their controversial Roast session that featured the who’s who of Bollywood in attendance. While the show itself drew immense flack, the members of the group were instantly catapulted into the limelight. Though post the show they have relegated themselves to youtube videos, one of the members, Tanmay Bhatt’s recent video has created a furore.
In fact Tanmay’s latest video titled, Sachin vs Lata – Civil War that features him playing the role of Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mageshkar hasn’t gone down too well. In fact with statements like “Phuck u virat”, “Virat is definitely good with the bat and ladies”, “Lata tai you are 5,000 years old so stay the phuck out of this”, “have you seen your face? it looks like someone has kept you in water for eight days” and many others, Tanmay faced the wrath of some of the popular personalities on twitter with the likes of Anupam Kher, Riteish Deshmukh, Celina Jaitley and others reprimanding him on the same.
Below are a few of the tweets directed towards Tanmay and his video.
Anupam Kher: “I am 9 times winner of #BestComicActor. Have a great sense of humor. But This’s NOT humor. #Disgusting&Disrespectful”
Riteish Deshmukh: “Am absolutely shocked. Disrespect is not cool and neither is it funny.”
Celina Jaitley: “Absolutely.. Shocked n appalled!! Not amused @mangeshkarlata ji needs to be apologised to .. NOW !! @rasheshshah”
Kamaal R Khan: “I can’t understand why do they insult old n legend ppl in the name of comedy? No fair! @tanuj_garg @mangeshkarlata”
Aaditya Thackeray: “Happened to watch a part of a desperate and shameful attempt to be funny by a wannabe comedian on @sachin_rt ji and @mangeshkarlata ji.”
Apart from the industry and well know public figures others on twitter too didn’t seem to like Bhatt’s jibe:
@SonnalP74: #Tanmaybhatt shud apologise to @mangeshkarlata n if he is not suitably handled he vil hurt more #Dis is not sense o humour dis is crass
