We cannot forget the late great Jaspal Bhatti and the fantastic show that was his satirical comedy, Flop Show.
And now, his wife, Savita Bhatti made it all the more sure that we don't forget the actor or the show where she went on to perform a mock demonstration of a loan offering for buying Valentine's Day gifts in Chandigarh in Flop Show style.
Bhatti has kept her husband's Nonsense Club alive where it has founded as a way of lampooning civic issues and malpractices prevalent in the country. Talking about it, she said, "Valentine's Day is slowly becoming a national festival and there is so much of pressure on the young to dole out expensive gifts each year," says Savita. She quips, "And these days the partners are not satisfied just receiving a rose as an expression of love. So, the Nonsense Club offers you easy loans with easy installments to buy diamond sets, vacation at expensive hotels or any other extravaganza."
Apart from Savita Bhatti, the club members include Vinod Sharma, Gurtej Tej,Pummy Sidhu, Lally Gill, Arvinder K. Singh who rendered a parody on the hit song, 'Pyaar lo, pyaar do'. Their version went as, ' Jeb main nahi hai chuani, Valentine Day ki pareshaani, Corona kar gaya purse khaali, Diamond mangti hai gharwaali, Mujhe hosh main aane to do,Loan lo, gift do…..'
That certainly does remind us of Mr. Jaspal Bhatti, doesn't it?
