In a brand new tweet, Hansal Mehta wrote, “I find the TV commercial terribly distasteful and disparaging. I did not ask for a ban for god’s sake. To those protectors of free speech outraged at my outrage – yes asking the concerned company to pull down ads was an overtly emotional/angry response and I gladly admit that.”
“To those calling me names from both the abusive fans to the IT cell trolls to the woke liberals to some senior friends who take indirect digs at me – chill. I don’t get the ad’s humour. Maybe you do. Glad you have such an evolved sense of humour. And those who bring up Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron in comparison to this commercial I can only – Get well soon,” he added after going through criticism for asking the model for elimination.
Earlier, Hansal reacted to the advert and mentioned, “This is a disgusting and disrespectful commercial. Pimp yourself but not at the cost of ridiculing art and it’s rich traditions. I demand that @Dream11 pulls this down.”
The industrial clip begins with Rishabh Pant questioning what he would have finished in his profession, if not a cricketer. It then reveals a hypothetical scenario, in humour, that includes Rishabh as a classical singer. However, he with the very best of his abilities, takes the wicketkeeper’s stance in entrance of the mics and finally ends up singing badly.
Hansal Mehta is kind of energetic on Twitter. He is understood for delivering critically acclaimed movies equivalent to Shahid, Aligarh amongst others. His final hit was Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story, that includes Prateik Gandhi. His upcoming movie is an untitled crime thriller, starring Kareena Kapoor.
