Just a year after the controversial 'AIB roast' video, comedian Tanmay Bhat's selfie video, in which he allegedly mocked veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar and cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, has evoked a sharp reaction from Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS). The party has decided to file an FIR against Bhat over the portrayal.
"Tomorrow morning, I am going to visit Shivaji Park police station and file FIR against Bhat," MNS Chitrapat Sena' president Ameya Khopkar said on 29 May.
He demanded that the video uploaded by Bhat should be removed immediately.
On 26 May, the comedian reportedly posted the video on Facebook titled "Sachin vs Lata Civil War" and cracked jokes about both the legends who mainly belong to Maharashtra.
Meanwhile, deputy commissioner of police (Operations) Sangramsingh Nishandar said, "No FIR has been registered in this issue as of yet".
