Indian Comedy group AIB member Tanmay Bhat's video of a mock conversation between legends Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar has provoked a howl of protests and faces a ban. Prodded by political parties, the Mumbai police says it is consulting legal experts and will contact Google and YouTube on blocking the video.

Police complaints have been filed against Mr Bhat by Maharashtra's ruling BJP and also Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).

The video, captioned "'Sachin vs Lata Civil War", was posted on Snapchat and Facebook on Thursday.

The video has the revered singer and the master blaster - both enacted by Mr Bhat using Snapchat's face-swap feature -  "arguing" about who is the better player, Sachin or Virat Kohli. It was posted with this disclaimer by Mr Bhat: "I make such nonsense on my Snapchat."

By Sunday, the video had been widely shared and had triggered far more outrage than deserved by "nonsense".
