He tried to do comedy but ended up insulting them. Many celebrities such as Anupam Kher, Ritesh Deshmukh let their displeasure known on twitter over this issue. Few people even went further and threatened to hurt Tanmay.
In reply, Sunil Pal, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge winner of 2005 shot a video to give an answer to Tanmay Bhat.
Sunil Pal stated on air at TV9 that, “Half the audience of Tanmay Bhat are gays and lesbians who like his sort of comedy and want to pollute our society and culture.” Sunil Pal also confessed that he didn’t understand Tanmay Bhat’s humor and what they do at AIB. He also said that they are trying to do a stand up comedy, but stand up comedy is not their cup of tea.
He continued "You will never understand even a single joke of his. All he does in his shows is stand in front of the crowd with a mic and make vulgar and below-the-belt statements."
