Jaspal Bhatti : This Is Not Funny Sir Ji !

MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           OCTOBER 26 , 2012           00.30 A.M.

Just four days after Yash Chopra‘s death , one more tragedy struck us . India‘s most loved comic genius and satirist Jaspal Singh Bhatti died yesterday on October 25 , 2012 in the morning in car accident . He was just 57 at the time of his death . One more fine human being is gone .

I had no personal contacts with him . I knew him only through his work and it is needless to say that I am a huge fan . Years ago , I saw his two TV serials, which came on Doordarshan, and I was hooked . Those serials were hugely popular . Name of the serials are ;  Ulta Pulta &  Flop Show

He had sharp and very subtle sense of humour. It was not crass or vulgar . Whole family can sit and watch and enjoy his satirical take on the mundane problems of the common man and that precisely everyone did in those days .

I am posting photos of his many campaigns , which were hilarious as well as hard – hitting at the same time .

Before he hit the national television , he , during his college days in Amritsar , used to do street plays . ” Nonsense Club ” was his most famous street play . For some time he also worked as a cartoonist for The Tribune .

Later on he moved to do some more serials and did many movies also . Again he left his mark .


TV serials

Towards the end , he set up a training school and a studio in Chandigarh . It is known as Joke Factory .

He died in a freak accident when his car , driven by his son , rammed into a tree . He was returning after promoting his latest film ” Power Cut ” . We have lost a fine comedian with a sense of social justice .

I deeply regret and mourn his death . On behalf of all the students and whole staff of Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , I pay homage to the departed soul .

R.I.P. Mr. Bhatti ! Though your last act is definitely not funny .

[ List of his films and serials is taken from Wikipedia . I express my gratitude . ]
