Hansal Mehta slams Rishabh Pant’s ‘disgusting and disrespectful’ new

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta is disgruntled with a new ad featuring Indian cricketer, Rishabh Pant. In the video, Rishabh can be seen practising classical singing while making fun of the genre.

Taking to his Twitter handle, Hansal Mehta wrote, “This is a disgusting and disrespectful commercial. Pimp yourself but not at the cost of ridiculing art and its rich traditions. I demand that

@Dream11 pulls this down.”

Reacting to Mehta’s tweet, the author Munish Bharadwaj wrote, “It’s in bad taste. Sure. Agreed. But why pull it down? IMO, Freedom of expression should be absolute as long as it’s not inciting violence or harm to anyone. Also, art and its rich traditions will remain intact forever but silly ads like these will be forgotten in seconds,”

Hansal then wrote, “Sure Munish. You have every right to think so. I’m offended and I have a right to say so. Same FoS. And yes maybe asking for it to be pulled down might be too much to ask. It’s a way of telling advertisers to be sensitive and respectful – particularly of one tradition that, like sports, transcends race/religion/borders and is one of the greatest unifiers. Do not ridicule it.”

Meanwhile, on the work front, Hansal is gearing up for his upcoming film is an untitled project with Kareena Kapoor, which will be a thriller.
