Swara Bhasker Bashes South African Comedian Trevor Noah, Says, “War Isn’t Funny Or Entertaining, Human Lives Were Lost”
The Pulwama attack caused major disturbance in India, and our country subsequently carried out a surgical strike in Pakistan a few days back. Now, the popular South African comedian Trevor Noah poked digs at the entire scenario.

On Comedy Central, he cracked jokes as he said, “I hope India and Pakistan don't go to war. But, if they did go, it would probably be the most entertaining war of all times." He further enacted how the situation would unfold by depicting how Indians would fight back in complete filmy style and said, “Another dance number?” His comments irked Swara Bhasker and she gave him a befitting response on Twitter.

Swara wrote, “@Trevornoah 1. War isn’t funny or entertaining. 2. Hindi is not gibberish. Ur stereotype of indo- pak  is ignorant & racist. 3. Ur set smacks of essentialism & a patronising generalisation & is v #FirstWorld 4. Human lives were lost & at stake. SO disappointing! @ComedyCentral”
She also wrote, “@Trevornoah @ComedyCentral a not racist & cruel version of this joke (IF Ur Writers was diverse)- India & Pak thankfully walking back from brink of war. Meanwhile, Bollywood looking to see how many dance numbers they can fit in2 movie version of this episode! Thanks @vedashastri”
