The popular face of AIB, Tanmay Bhat got quite a negative response for his roast on celebrated Indian icons such as Lata Mangeshkar and Cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.

Almost the whole nation was against Tanmay and went as far as taking legal action against him. And social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter were flooded with comments and reactions against him.

However, Lataji's reaction turned out to be undisturbed and an hilarious one. She proved to be a lot better in being humorous.

The wire has finally got the nightingale of India's reaction to the roast video by Mr. Bhat. The report quotes her saying, "I have not seen the video, neither do I have any inclination to do so. I will not comment about it". Adding further she said, "By the way, I don't know who is Tanmay Bhat."

Lataji's younger sisters Asha Bhosle and Meena Khadikar have also finally commented on the video.

Taking to Bombay Times, Asha Bhosle said, "I have not seen the video nor do I intend to. My grandson Chintu informed me about it as I don't even watch television. I don't want to say anything except for we are talking about a woman (Lata didi), who has worked for 70-80 years of her life, spreading joy and happiness through her music. I now want to wait and watch how many people will stand by us. Most people have a knack of debating about it for a couple of days and forgetting about it. Aaplya deshat, Bharat Ratnancha kiti aadar aahe hey baghaycha aahe (I want to see what respect and honour do the Bharat Ratnas get in our country). The government has bestowed this honour upon them. They must make a note of this."

Meena tai said, " We don't know who this man is nor have we discussed this issue with Lata didi. Even news channels should follow some discretion and avoid replaying that video on TV as our phone hasn't stopped ringing for the past two days. She is 86 years old. Her health is sensitive and this is the last thing she needs to know."
