Sorry, dude! This is just not in good taste!
It's really not logical to expect anything more than below the belt jokes and sometimes even disrespectable jibes from All India Bakchod, especially from one of their founder members Tanmay Bhat. After all, this is that group who gained so much popularity due to one of their stage show's notoriety.
Yet, we were willing to laugh at their jokes because, come on, who doesn't enjoy a dirty joke every now and then. Their Roasting of Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, along with Karan Johar, might be offensive to many, but if most of the victims were cool about being the butt of these jokes, why should we bother? So we sat back and enjoyed our favourite stars being ridiculed by this group, because...hey...this is so cool and the 'in' thing!
AIB did redeem themselves by hosting the On Air with AIB, a light take on the social issues our country is facing. It was certainly eye-opening, though some of the group's notorious humour sense did creep in. To be fair, I even enjoy their video on YouTube, despite the cussing, because we could relate to many of the situation and the humour in them.
But when you touch the people who we revere and respect, you have gone a bit too far, dudes!
Today, Tanmay Bhat posted a Snapchat video of himself where he created a banter between Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar, using the Faceswap tool. And it was nothing short of being disrespectful, offensive and mean to all the people he was referring to, including Virat Kohli. Neither were the jokes he cracking funny, nor were his digs about Lata Mangeskar, one of the biggest singing legends of our country, and Sachin Tendulkar, still considered God by many, forgivable!
Just who can bear Lata Mangeshkar being compared with Melisandre and being asked to die? Or 'Sachin', a man who never swore one time on ground, abusing Virat Kohli? This is just no comedy, because none of that made us laugh!
This time, dude, you have gone too far with your jokes...don't know about janta, but hum toh maaf nahi karenge!
