Star Plus' The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, comedian Shyam Rangeela's
video imitating Prime Minister Narendra Modi (with a mimicked version
of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi making a ‘guest appearance’) has gone
viral on social media.
Star Plus had refused to air his act recorded for the channel’s reality show.
After about a month he did the act, Rangeela was told to redo another act, which was not on Modi.
Rangeela was not amused because he had been invited by the channel to participate in the reality show after his videos mimicking Modi and other politicians went viral on social media.
According to Rangeela, he was also told that he could do a mimic act on Rahul Gandhi if he wanted- but later was stopped from that too.
The video in question has now been taken down following a copyright claim by a subsidiary of Star India Private Limited, but is still present on the YouTube.
