The world may want to roast Tanmay Bhat for making fun of singer Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar in a Snapchat video but the singer herself is “unaffected.”
Lata told DNA that she has not watched the video. “Nothing affects me. I’ve been through so much, I’ve faced so many hurdles in life. At an age when other girls play with dolls, I was out of the house trying to find work as a singer. I learnt from a young age that work is the only thing that matters,” Lata is quoted as saying.
She is upset that her well-wishers got upset because of it. She said she doesn’t like the idea of “people getting hassled because of me.” She also had a message for her fans: “We must not give undue importance to those who thrive on maligning people. I am sure they have their reasons for doing what they do.”
Bhat used an app called Face Swap, which allows users to “borrow” another person’s face, for creating two videos titled Sachin Vs Lata #Civilwar that angered admirers of both the singer and the cricketer. Among other things in the videos, Bhat suggested why 86-year-old Mangeshkar was still “alive” and debated if test captain Virat Kohli was better than Tendulkar.
