Tanmay Bhat is the guy we see in those really funny AIB videos. He has tickled our funny bone and even earned our applause for that famous roast.

He is good, no doubt, but what he has done this time has made some social media users and practically anyone who understands good comedy terribly angry.

Bhat posted two videos using Snapchat’s features imitating Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar.

In the videos Tanmay shows the two legends fighting over whether Virat Kohli is a great cricketer or not.

Perhaps Tanmay knew that the video will fan a flame, so he posted this while sharing it on Facebook:

“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 some celebs are furious with what Bhat has done.


Those offended pointed out that saying something like “Jon Snow is dead and so should you” for someone like Lata Mangeshkar is not comedy but insult.




Yet some supported Tanmay:

Comedy is fine, even mimicking famous personalities. Yet words matter.
