The Shiv Sena-promoted Bharatiya Chitrapat Sena (BCS) has raised strong objection against the popular television comedy show 'Comedy Circus', for making fun of the legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar. The outfit has demanded immediate removal of the character from the show.
“A character on the show has been making fun of Lata Mangeshkar, who is a Bharat Ratna awardee. The character is nowhere near the stature enjoyed by Lata Didi. How can they make fun of her. She is the voice of the country," BCS President Abhijit Panse told PTI.
Panse said that the outfit has asked the channel to drop that character. “If the young generation watches these type of shows then they won''t understand the meaning of respect. Therefore, we have given a letter to the channel asking it to immediately drop the character from the show," he said, adding, “We are not against humour but to ridicule someone like Lata Mangeshkar is highly objectionable."
