I watched the latest video of that Fat, morose, lazy and possibly the ugliest person on the planet. I am talking about Tanmay Bhat, the self-styled funny man. Tanmay Bhat and his comedy gang All India Bakchod have taken the level of comedy in this country to unfathomable depths. I am all for freedom of expression, freedom of speech and freedom of everything that can possibly be free. What Tanmay Bhat asks for is freedom of absurdity and crassness. And the fat rascal is absurd and crass like hell.
I do believe that comedy should spare none and there should be no holy cows in the eyes of a standup artist or a cartoonist or a satirist. Sachin Tendulkar is great, sure but should he not be teased? I don’t think so. Lata Mangeshkar whom people in this country consider the living incarnation of goddess Saraswati is a mere mortal as well. Should she be spared? Not at all. But, in his latest ‘funny’ video, Tanmay Bhat showcases a jealous Sachin Tendulkar hurling abuses at Virat Kohli in the crassest language possible. Also Sachin Tendulkar is seen hurling sexist slurs on Lata Mangeshkar as well. Here is the video for everyone to see.
Tanmay Bhat ‘s idea of comedy is insults like ‘Jon Snow also died, so should you’, ‘your face looks like someone has kept you in water for eight days’ for the octogenarian singer and diminishing a cricketing legend to an abdomen guard adjusting nobody.
Tanmay Bhat must realize that Sachin Tendulkar has played in the era of batting legends like Rahul Dravid, Ricky Ponting, Jacques Kallis, Brian Lara, Mark Waugh and Shivnarine Chanderpaul. He has ruled the pace attacks of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Glenn McGrath, Imran Khan, Courtney Walsh and Curtly Ambrose. He has dominated Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan, the two best spinners of all times. Sachin Tendulkar is Sachin Tendulkar not just because he was good with the bat, but because he had a great temperament. Humility and Honor is what defines Sachin Tendulkar and not jealousy. Sachin Tendulkar being jealous of Virat Kohli is not just stupid but disrespectful to Virat Kohli himself who considers himself a devotee of Sachin. Also Lata Mangeshkar is not just a singer but an institution in herself. She is an ambassador of India’s cultural heritage. She is not just India’s best-known singer but the most respected playback singer in India. She has a career that has spanned over seven decades. How many artists can boast of that?
Comedy and Crassness have nothing in common. Comedy is an art and Crassness is hooliganism. Tanmay Bhat belongs to the latter category. He and his band of boys “All India Bakchod” are rioters with microphones who have no purpose, no class and absolutely no honour. Salman Khan made Tanmay Bhat empty his bladders in his XXXXXXXXL trousers that he wears when he thought of ridiculing Salman’s sister for her ‘ugliness’. Without deliberations, he surrendered and deleted his video for Salman is someone you generally do not mess with. Tanmay Bhat and his AIB were made to issue an unconditional apology when they dared cracking Christian jokes in their crassness mega fest “Roast”. But I am pretty sure Sachin and Lata Tai won’t strong-arm them. Not because they cannot but because they don’t really need to. They are far too honourable to drag this fat baboon to public trial. And Tanmay bhat must thank his lucky stars for that.
PS: I understand that I have taken repeated digs on Tanmay’s fatness as well, I was exercising my freedom of expression.
