You read that right! Yet another hater on the Tanmay Bhat controversy. With head turning responses from people and fans… India’s iconic scriptwriter, lyricist and poet, Javed Akhtar took offense and how!

 

Without much hesitation he called out on Tanmay Bhat comparing his mind to a cockroach.

 

Here’s what he had to say… It is quite entertaining.

 

“This chap (Tanmay Bhat) has the mind of a cockroach. Humour is something we all appreciate. But what is funny about ridiculing Lataji? The video is cheap and unworthy of getting any attention.The chap had not bargained for the backlash. Since he had gotten away with so much crassness in the past he thought he would get away this time. But there are celebrities. And then there is Lata Mangeshkar. You can’t get away with ridiculing her.”

 

Not too far from the controversy including her sister, Asha Bhonslesaid that Tanmay’s attempt at comedy was nothing less than LAME.

 

She said, “I have not seen the video nor do I intend to. My grandson Chintu informed me about it as I don’t even watch television. I don’t want to say anything except for we are talking about a woman (Lata didi), who has worked for 70-80 years of her life, spreading joy and happiness through her music. I now want to wait and watch how many people will stand by us. Most people have a knack of debating about it for a couple of days and forgetting about it. Aaplya deshat, Bharat Ratnancha kiti aadar aahe hey baghaycha aahe (I want to see what respect and honour do the Bharat Ratnas get in our country). The government has bestowed this honour upon them. They must make a note of this.”

 

Subhash Ghai too decided to cough up his opinion asking Tanmay to learn something from Kapil Sharma: #Ouch

Shatrugan Sinha went on record saying:

 

“They’ve insulted the greatest singer of the country. To make such a cheap video featuring her is bad enough. To add Sachin to the mix, adds insult to injury.”
