Colors channel’s apology finally gets a reply from Tannishtha Chatterjee!

Much has been spoken about the entire ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’ and Tannishtha Chatterjee controversy. It all started when Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radhika Apte and ‘Parched’ director Linaa Yadav made an appearance on the comedy show ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’ hosted by Krushna Abhishek, and the show follows a roast format. Krushna Abhishek’s jokes on Tannishtha’s skin tone did not impress the actress at all and she walked out of the show. After the fiasco, Colors TV apologised to the actress and now even Krushna has apologised. In fact, after the incident Tannishtha wrote a letter explaining how it was unethical to only roast a celeb on the basis of skin tone, which sends out a wrong signal in the society.

Now, Tannishtha has finally replied to Colors channel’s apology. Her reply is short and sweet but quite impactful. She replied, “Thanks for your letter but you don’t need to apologise to me. This is not about offending me but about propagating a deeply prejudiced mindset. I wish the show had actually `roasted’ me. I think this incident makes way for a much bigger debate -about what popular culture propagates and the responsibilities that people who are at the forefront of that culture need to shoulder. I am glad that your channel has shows that address social prejudices. I expect the same from your comedies. I expect that the people who create the content and the comedians who work with that content go back to the basics of what satire or `vyang’ actually means, raise the bar, and make it funny while keeping social prejudices out of it. Understand the nuances of humour , the literary aspects as well as the period in history when they came into being. Try and find humour on those lines. We all want comedies and we all want to be offended but hurting someone’s sentiments is different from reinforcing social injustices. I’m sure you understand what I’m trying to say. I hope, in the future, it’s not about me but the fact that none of these ideas or line of thoughts should get room to thrive.This is not personal. Thank You. ” [sic]

This reply was collected from a popular tabloid. Now isn’t her reply classy?
