Mumbai: Amid the growing uproar over Tanmay Bhat’s controversial video, which imagines a conversation between singer Lata Mangeshkar and legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, actress Sonam Kapoor has come out in support of comedy collective AIB’s co-founder saying that she is “shocked” with the “over reaction”.
Sonam feels that Mr Bhat’s video has been misinterpreted. She posted a series of tweets on Tuesday. Bollywood celebrities like Anupam Kher, Subhash Ghai, Riteish Deshmukh and Satish Kaushik have strongly condemned the video on Twitter.
Police complaints have been filed against Mr Bhat by Maharashtra’s ruling BJP and also Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS). The video, which was made on Snapchat and shared on Facebook on May 26, was titled: ‘Sachin vs Lata Civil War.’ It went viral on social media and triggered widespread outrage.
