Enough have been said, written, and debated about Tanmay Bhat's infamous Snapchat video mimicking Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar. While the video divided social media, it also made for an unfortunate prime time issue to be discussed on various TV News channels.
However, seems like the people in question don't really want to give this much attention to the video.
Lata Mangeshkar has now stated that she doesn't feel the need for people to be bothered by any such spoof video on her. Talking to a leading daily, she made her stance clear on the issue and said:
"Log bahot pareshan ho gaye. Mujhe yeh bura laga. I don't like the idea of people getting hassled because of me. I want to assure all my well-wishers that these (spoofs, etc) are very small matters. There are far greater issues in life. We must not give undue importance to those who thrive on maligning people. I am sure they have their reasons for doing what they do."
She also made it a point to mention that she had already gone through a lot of struggle in life and such incidents don't affect her at this stage. She added:
"Nothing affects me. I've been through so much, I've faced so many hurdles in life. At an age when other girls play with dolls I was out of the house trying to find work as a singer. I learnt from a young age that work is the only thing that matters."
