My take on Tanmay Bhat’s snapchat video.

Well, the garma garam topic since 2 days is the snapchat video of Tanmay Bhat wherein he imitates Sachin’s voice with 3D mask and makes a debate between Lata Mangeshkar and him on the topic of, who is better batsman Virat or sachin?
When I saw the video, hearing the mimicry of sachin’s voice and Lata mangeshkar’s voice, I was laughing. Soon in few seconds, the line came up- ‘Lata di you are 5000 years old, so better you die. Even John Snow has died…etc.’ and I was like…Ohhh, that’s quite too much. Telling a legend to die is not at all funny. Especially such legends, because of whom the world respects India.

BUT,

The reaction which it has recieved, is in fact also quite bizzare like the jokes on Lata Mangeshkar. MNS people baning his future shows in Mumbai. Filing an FIR against him. I mean what the fuck!

Tanmay Bhat is no match to the legends whom he has made fun of in the video, so why are people taking him so seriously?????

Moreover, Lata Mangeshkar herself has said she doesn’t want to see the video. She just ignored it. Why can’t we too ignore it?

Its simple, if you like something, watch it and applause. If you don’t like something, ignore it. Or just don’t subscribe that snapchat ID or their youtube channel. Have they forced you to join?

Why Ban them???

There are so many important issues in the country which requires immediate action and even our attention as well, but nobody gives a fuck about it. Nobody cares about water problem people are facing, nobody cares about farmer’s problem. How to develop irrigation facilities this year? How to save more and more water? All this is ignored and topic of Tanmay Bhat’s snapchat is discussed as if there is nothing better to do.

How many channels have cared to talk on recent MAN KI BAAT by PM Modi ?? Have they even heard it?

Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin don’t care about the video. Why should we invest our valuable time in it?

And BY THE WAY,

There should not be any problem on him mimicing Sachin and Lata, many comedians in the past have done it in comedy shows. Even now they do it in Kapil sharma show. But yeah, they don’t abuse. Abusing has offended us, so just don’t watch the video. Don’t ban him. He has done very comical videos before(Except the Roast) which were loved by people, we should not simply ignore that.

People are tweeting against Tanmay Bhat because celebrities like Ritesh Deshmukh, Celina Jetley, etc have also tweeted against him. They are like, if celebrities are saying he is wrong, he MUST be wrong. Come on, you have your own brain, decide for yourself.

I am not at all supporting his video, I didn’t like the abusive part. But I am also not supporting the over-reaction his video has received. Media should focus on important topics in regards to country rather than showing tanmay’s stupid video again and again, and debating on it. And Banning, is never a solution, because then there would be no difference between India and Pakistan.

Think.
