WEB DESK: AIB comedian Tanmay Bhat is at it again. And this time the unsuspecting victims of the comedian’s roasting were Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar.
In a new video posted on his official Facebook page, Tanmay is seen roasting the revered Bharat Ratna awardees all in the name of humour. Titled Sachin v/s Lata Civil War, some of the punchlines used against Lata in the video include Jon Snow also died, so should you, Your face looks like someone has kept you in water for eight days.
The act didn’t go down well with denizens of Bollywood. Actors Riteish Deshmukh, Celina Jaitly and others slammed the comedian for crossing the line this time.
“Am absolutely shocked. Disrespect is not cool and neither is it funny,” wrote Riteish on his Twitter timeline.

Others who criticised Tanmay included ex Balaji boss Tanuj Garg, KRK.
It looks like after the much debated AIB roast last year, Tanmay has opened doors for yet another controversy.
