Over the last weekend, the word Mitrooon drew peals of laughter instead of instilling reactions mingled with fear and awe. A 22-year-old stand-up comedian from Sri Ganganagar in Rajasthan walked up on stage at the reality TV show Great Indian Laughter Challenge, decked up in an attire commonly associated with the politician, held the microphone tight and announced – “Mitrooon. Main aaj aap ke liye ek bohot hi buri khabar le kar ke aaya hoon”(Friends, I have some really bad news for you today).

Shyam Rangeela continued with his mimicry act and went on speaking about the popular TV serial, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hain. His act was sprinkled with references to policies like demonetisations. The judges, Akshay Kumar, Zakir Khan and Hussain Dalal cracked up. He referred to Rahul Gandhi quite a number of times during the act, though his Modi certainly over-powered his Gandhi.

The comedian has alleged that Star Plus has refused to air his act recorded for the aforementioned reality show. According to a report by The Wire, Rangeela said, “Almost after a month almost after the episode was originally recorded, I got a phone call from the production team of the reality show asking me to shoot a new act because the channel decided not to air it.

He further added, “The production team told me that the decision to not air my act was taken because the channel feared that it will offend some people and they might protest against them.” He was also asked to re-record the act and told that he can mimic Rahul Gandhi but not Narendra Modi.

He has posted his hilarious take on the Indian politicians earlier as well. Last November he had posted a video, titled “Modiji’s reaction on Sonam Gupta Bewafa Hain.”

The Logical Indian has reached out to Star India and is awaiting their response.


The Logical Indian Take 

The Logical Indian community strongly condemns the act of creative censorship propagated by the Star India authorities. The mimicry was purely enacted out of zest and is essentially meant for fun. It certainly did not have any abusive content or did not aim to demean or hurt anybody’s sentiments. This act of self-censorship only refers to political appeasement, trying to take sides only with a particular party.
