Recently, All India Bakchod co-founder and comedian Tanmay Bhat uploaded a video to Facebook, from his Snapchat story. The story dominated every news outlet, and became a national news story.

In the video, Bhat used Snapchat’s face-swap filters to simulate a conversation between Sachin Tendulkar and Lata Mangeshkar, featuring the legends dissing one another. It was titled “Sachin vs. Lata Civil War”.

Here's Mangeshkar's full statement to dna:


"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.

Log bahot pareshan ho gaye. Mujhe yeh bura laga. I don't like the idea of people getting hassled because of me. I want to assure all my well-wishers that these (spoofs, etc.) are very small matters. There are far greater issues in life. 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.

It's the love of the people that has kept me going for so long."
