Comedy outfit AIB is known to create some controversy everytime they come out with their videos. I’s nothing new and they’ve usually found favour with the masses, making those in power or sporting white collars feel a bit uncomfortable.
But, it seems Tanmay Bhat, took things a bit too far this time when he posted a video on Facebook titled ‘Sachin vs Lata Civil War’. –
People found it offensive and insulting more than funny.
Tanmay superimposed faces of the ‘God of Cricket’ Sachin Tendulkar and musical legend Lata Mangeshkar to enact an argument on whether Virat Kohli is better than the Master Blaster.
Tanmay mimicked both personalities well, and even brought in a bit of Vinode Kambli.
In a usual AIB fashion, the roast doesn’t go easy on either person.
At one point, taking a jab at Mangeshkar, he says: “Jon Snow also died, so you should also die”.
And such punches definitely didn’t sit well with many, including members of the film fraternity such as Riteish Deskhmukh and Celina Jaitly.
Tanmay had, though, tried to ward off any negative comments with the caption accompanying the Facebook post. He wrote: Sachin vs Lata Civil War (I make such nonsense on my Snapchat – follow me there – ID: Thetanmay) (Also I obvously love Lata and Sachin, just having some fun). But that didn’t really have much of a pacifying effect.
He was also criticized on Twitter!
What’s the opinion of all those who supported #AIB last time on them abusing @mangeshkarlata? ?

Am absolutely shocked. Disrespect is not cool and neither is it funny. http://t.co/ymYPi9hxuv

Overall Tanmay seems to have the hit the wrong notes with this one!
