Stand up comic Tanmay Bhat is facing flak from Bollywood celebrities, politicians, and fans of Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar for his latest video. MNS has threatened to take legal action against him while also threatening to thrash him. But Bhat is treating it like a boss.
So Bhat drew parallels to the aftermath of the AIB roast back in 2014.

He also tried to calm the nerves of those offended by the joke with this.

It didn't work. So he tried talking to the guys at Snapchat for making the app this popular:
A snapstory is going to be on the news tonight. Congrats everyone.— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) May 29, 2016
And took credit for introducing Game Of Thrones to local audiences.
Melissandre reference made it to local marathi channels. #globalization— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) May 29, 2016
And had a mic drop moment with this tweet:
Now that's what you call courage under fire.
