Jaspal Singh Bhatti: The man who took comedy seriously

Jaspalsingh Bhatti was born on 3 March 1955 at Amritsar in a Rajput Sikh family.
He graduated from Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh in Punjab, as an electrical engineer.
He was very famous for his street plays like his Nonsense Club during his college days.
Most of these plays were spoofs ridiculing corruption in society.
Before venturing into television, he was a cartoonist for the The Tribune newspaper in Chandigarh.

India’s leading media critic Amita Malik says of him:

"Bhatti has the correct style for TV, an understated, quiet humour which sinks in without shouting,
which mercilessly exposes both corruption in our every day life and the typical people, who thrive on it.

The grim fact and the hard truths of our society so bitter otherwise are made so funny through the adept handling of Bhatti, that cleansing laughter is created out of common malpractices.

The low-budget series 'Flop Show' is remembered even today for taking on the problems of middle class Indians in a quirky way.

His wife Savita Bhatti produced the show and acted in all the episodes as his wife.

On 25 October 2012, he died in a car accident.

May His Soul Live In Peace.......

Re: "flop show ka hit hero"

I would call him SATIRIST rather than "comedian"..his SATIRE is world class...unlike the other run off the mill comedians who make silly (at best) and sick (at worst) jokes on buffaloes peeing and cows mooing...His SATIRE was SERIOUS yet FUNNY...He made us all LAUGH ( in LIFE)..and now made us all CRY (in death)....and he is one RAJPUT (Bhatti is a Rajput Clan /gotra ) who kept his SABAT SOORAT SIKH SROOP well....his dastarr and Full beard was REAL...unlike the Fakes who are also "sikh" comedians..but have fake beards and fake dastaars....
