Tanmay Bhat's spoof on Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar has spread anger among the people. Today Maharashtra’s Raj Thackeray’s MNS had filed an FIR against Tanmay Bhat and also issued 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 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.”
