Indian actors Anupam Kher, Riteish Deshmukh and Celina Jaitly criticised AIB’s Tanmay Bhat for roasting Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar, calling the video “not funny”. Titled “Sachin v/s Lata Civil War”, Tanmay is seen taking jibes at the 86-year-old melody queen and the cricketing legend, 43.
Some of the punchlines used against Mangeshkar in the video include, ‘Jon Snow also died, so should you, Your face looks like someone has kept you in water for eight days.’ Kher posted on Twitter, “I am 9 times winner of #BestComicActor. Have a great sense of humor. But This is NOT humor. #Disgusting&Disrespectful.”
“Am absolutely shocked. Disrespect is not cool and neither is it funny,” wrote Riteish. A shocked Jaitly wrote, “Absolutely.. Shocked and appalled. Not amused. Lata Mangeshkarji needs to be apologised to NOW!!”
