    No jokes on Amit Shah out of fear: Cyrus

    Cyrus Broacha, one of the most popular satirists in the country, has said he would not crack a joke on Amit Shah as he did not on Bal Thackeray when he was alive “purely, purely out of fear”.

    Broacha was addressing students at Satyajit Ray Film & Television Institute on Saturday afternoon.

    Responding to a question on whether he was more politically correct now, Broacha said: “We try not to be personal. But I must say there are lots of people we haven’t touched. We never touch Mahatma Gandhi. We won’t touch Amit Shah. We didn’t touch Bal Thackeray while he was alive. This is purely, purely out of fear. I cannot lie.”

    Broacha said that on “television we have to be careful. Ultimately it is a question of survival. What can you do?”

    Living in India now is “almost like” living in the Soviet Union, he added. “It’s almost like living in the Soviet Union and now under the present government, it is a bit like that….”

    Broacha’s session was on the role of humour in motivational man management. “We have to cut down a little bit on the hate that’s brewing. It’s now a little scary…. I just hope we take it a little laid back and easy,” he said, concluding his session.
