Mumbai: Comedian Tanmay Bhat of the AIB is in trouble over his video purportedly mocking veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena has decided to file an FIR against him and also threatened to thrash him.
"This act is condemnable, these videos are just mere publicity stunts. Forgiveness won't do, these people should be caught on the road and beaten up. Cyber cell and Shivaji Park Police Station should arrest them, that's our demand. We need an FIR against them. We will protest and he won't be able to come out on the road. We won't let his shows happen anymore," MNS leader Ameya Kopekar said.
The MNS is also demanding the removal of the video from the internet.
Tanmay was also trolled on Twitter for mocking Tendulkar and Mangeshkar in a gig. He was slammed by actors Anupam Kher and Riteish Deshmukh over his video titled "Sachin vs Lata Civil War".
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 these legends.
