New Delhi: Comedy group All India Bakchod (AIB) co-founder-creator Tanmay Bhat is under flak from leaders of political parties across political spectrum in Maharashtra and Bollywood for “belittling” two Bharat Ratna awardees -- singer Lata Mangeshkar and ace cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
Twitteratis have also reacted sharply to the comedian's portrayal of the music and cricket icons.
The Mumbai police has, meanwhile, asked Facebook and YouTube to block comedian Tanmay Bhat's video of a mock conversation with Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar.
Titled "Sachin v/s Lata Civil War", Tanmay, in a video posted on Facebook on May 26, took jibes at the 86-year-old melody queen and the 43-year-old cricketing legend.
This is how Twitteratis reacted to the video which went viral on the social media:

By #TanmayRoasted no good is going to happen. He is just trying to gain publicity. This is a mere publicity stunt!

No sane person wants #TanmayRoasted like this. But why doesn't anyone protest on Kamlesh Tiwari, who called Prophet Md gay, rotting in jail?
