The comedian has been heavily criticised for his offensive jokes...
Tanmay Bhat has been the talk of the day for the past two-three days. The comedian ran into controversy after posting a video on Snapchat where he mimicked Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar via the special face swap effect. While the jokes could have been hilarious, Tanmay became offensive and when he told that John Snow (Game of Thrones character) was also dead so she should also die, that was the limit. Comparing a veteran artiste as a person whose face has been in water for 8 days and portraying a National cricketing legend as an abusive and egoistic person wasn't funny and everyone from the film and political fraternity , including fellow comedians have slammed him.
The latest one to protest this episode is veteran film-maker
Subhash Ghai. The director is a person of vast knowledge and many actors take his advice, so what he says is very important. He mentioned in his Twitter, "People of india is terribly hurt by new comedy/jokes on elders icons the inspirations to generations. Learn to respect elders. Stop it here."
He also mentioned that young comedians should learn how to joke around from
Kapil Sharma and his show. As he tweeted further, "Kapil sharma show is most popular comedy show today- has he ever hurt anyone or disrespect seniors icons legends? Let's learn from him."
In the meanwhile, SpotBoyE got in touch with Lataji and she said that she hasn't seen the video and doesn't intend to also. However, sources close to her revealed that she was hurt by the jokes.
