Indians have never been very welcoming of satire, or comedy too. More often than not, people feel they are being made fun of, however, it is more than just that. And well, something that has caught our attention recently is the rap on Saath Nibhana Saathiya by Yashraj Mukhate.
The Star Plus television show had a great run and in fact, also fared good TRPs. For more reasons than one, the show was also subjected to many spoofs and memes. None the less, it looks like it has now resurfaced and for rather different reasons.
Check out the rap video here:
First World Problems • Made Kokila Ben sing this time • I love doing harmonies, enjoyed this one a lot •

A rap on Saath Nibhana Saathiya, combining some of the dialogues from the famous Kokilaben has been doing the rounds. While it is just another viral video, what has our attention is the sheer fact that Rupal Patel responded to it too.
The actress is currently seen on yet another show, Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke, and she called Yashraj to praise him. Among other things, while he was overwhelmed, Patel seemed to be in awe as well.
While everyone is enjoying the viral video, there is something bigger that it makes us wonder, a question rather. Have we come far enough in entertainment that we can happily accept such videos, memes? While this is just a random rap on Saath Nibhana Saathiya, we all know how easily the audiences get offended, what about the artists though?
We all remember the recent incident about the comedian and her remark, but does it make it okay for us to criticize whoever and however? Everyone is a sport while taking to comedy and jokes, but it becomes offensive when coming from the other end.
What we are trying to say is we must treat entertainment as just that, irrespective of which side is it coming from! And that is just about it.
