MNS to file FIR against comedian's video mocking Lata Mangeshkar, Sachin Tendulkar


The Shiv Sena and BJP today demanded action against AIB and comedian Tanmay Bhat for a video in which he allegedly mocked singing legend Lata Mangeshkar and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. The Sena asked Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to take stringent action against AIB and Bhat for allegedly seeking to vitiate social harmony through videos on Mangeshkar and Tendulkar.

Party leader Neelam Gorhe has written to Fadnavis seeking action against those behind the video which she alleged was made by people with “deranged mentality”. “Such people try to misuse the popularity of icons like Sachin and Lata tai for their own publicity,” Gorhe said.

“I have also written to Mumbai Police Commissioner seeking action against Tanmay Bhat and AIB,” the Sena leader said. Mumbai BJP president Ashish Shelar spoke to the Police Commissioner and requested that a police complaint be filed against Tanmay Bhat and AIB.

The MNS had also earlier said it will lodge an FIR against Tanmay and demanded that the video uploaded by him be removed immediately. Titled “Sachin v/s Lata Civil War”, Tanmay is seen in the video taking jibes at the 86-year-old melody queen and the 43-year-old cricketing legend.

Actors Anupam Kher, Riteish Deshmukh and Celina Jaitly had yesterday criticised Bhat for roasting Tendulkar and Mangeshkar, calling the video “not funny”.
