By now, we all know about the stand-up comedian Tanmay Bhat and his ‘recent claim to fame’. For those who came in late, Tanmay Bhat has been in the eye of the storm ever since his Snapchat video ‘featuring’ Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar went viral under the title of ‘Sachin vs Lata Civil Wars’. With this video, Tanmay Bhat seems to have made more enemies than friends and admirers.
The milk major Amul, as always, came up with their ‘ode’ to the talk of the town. This time round, their ad features the Amul girl surrounded by the two ‘Bharat Ratnas’ in the form of Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar’s caricatures. The ad’s caption stated ‘Joke se jokhim tak’, which clearly was hinted at Tanmay Bhat, whose ‘joke’ landed him up in ‘jokhim’ (danger).
The ad, as always had a befitting tagline. This time, it said ‘FIR se dikhaao’, which was hinted at the ‘FIR’ that was filed against Tanmay Bhat for insulting two of India’s prominent personalities.
