Jaspal Bhatti, the man who made all of us laugh our hearts out with his ‘Flop Show’ and ‘Ulta Pulta’ comedy, is no more.
57-year-old Bhatti, along with his son Jasraj and the lead actress Suril Gautam of his upcoming film ‘Power Cut’ were on their way to Jalandhar from Bhatinda for a promotional event. The car in which the three were travelling collided with a tree on Thursday at around 1am. Jasraj and Suril were severely injured and were rushed to a hospital, while Bhatti succumbed to his injuries.
Bhatti’s cremation is scheduled to take place on Thursday evening. He is survived by his wife, son and daughter.
The 1980s and early 1990s saw the emergence of Bhatti as a cult figure. A common man could relate with his satirical take on the socio-economic state of affairs and the problems of aam aadmi.
He had graduated in electrical engineering from Punjab Engineering College in Chandigarh and had worked as a cartoonist with a reputed media house before venturing into TV.
