Oho. Jaspal Bhatti died in a car crash. From what I know, the first Indian TV comedian to venture into political satire. Sad.
If you've never watched FlopShow & dont know how important it was for our humor-starved existence back then.
Shocking to know about Jaspal Bhatti, satire is dead
The establishment wud have slaughtered Jaspal Bhatti long ago but for his ability to makes us laugh with his truth telling.
Jaspal Bhatti did well in Hindi movies too, with his rather dead pan humor, and effortless acting.
