Mumbai: In a major trouble for AIB comedian Tanmay Bhat, Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Monday filed a complaint against him over AIB's video captioned 'Sachin vs Lata Civil War' issue.
Also, MNS has threatened to thrash him.
The Mumbai Police Special Branch is inquiring into the complaint against the AIB comedian for disrespecting legends Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar.
"The Special Branch is inquiring into the complaint against AIB," said DCP, PRO Mumbai Police Sangram Singh Nishandar.
Comedian Tanmay Bhat's purported video in which he allegedly mocked veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has evoked sharp reactions from several circles including MNS.
"Tomorrow morning, I am going to visit Shivaji Park police station and file FIR against Bhatt," 'MNS Chitrapat Sena' president Ameya Khopkar had said on Sunday night. He demanded that the video uploaded by Bhatt be removed immediately.
The comedian reportedly posted the video on May 26 on Facebook titled "Sachin vs Lata Civil War" and cracked apparently not-so-funny jokes about both the legends.
Tanmay is facing flak on Twitter too for the video.
Anupam Kher has also slammed Tanmay for the video.
