Saw the news in the morning flashed across all channels. Really really sad. The guy used to make me laugh in each and every episodes of "Flop Show" and "Ulta Pulta".
Rest in peace Bhatti sahab. Will miss you.

I wish to add my sorrow to this bit of news. This engineer did have a fantastic sense of humour, and of looking at things differently. I will surely miss him. RIP Jaspal B. Those whom the Gods love die young!!

Sad news. He wouldnt have been too old I presume and I always wondered where he "vanished" after the flop show. For a man of his talent am sure all of us would have wanted to see more of him.RIP

Very unfortunate news. Mr. Bhatti was a comedian that one can relate to from the Doordarshan days. May his soul rest in peace.

One of the real comedy greats of Indian television. His Flop Show was pretty legendary back in the day, and we used to watch each episode without fail. Sad news.

I still watch flop show every now and then. Have a DVD set of all the episodes. The issues which he raised are still as much relevant today as they were maybe 15-20 years back! It\'s surely one of the best comedy series ever made in India. I wish he had made a second iteration too!

RIP Bhatti Saab.


Actor and satirist Jaspal Bhatti died in a road accident near Punjab\'s Nakodar town, 40 km from Jalandhar, on early Thursday, police said in Jalandhar. Bhatti\'s car collided with a tree along the highway while he was on his way to Jalandhar for the promotion of his latest film Power Cut.

May his soul rest in peace. Truly a pioneer in clean humor, satire, and socially relevant comedy. His work paved the way for the current comedians, though we don\'t find the same cleanliness and relevance today from other performers.

The way he went is really unfortunate. I have myself experienced dozing off while driving at night. I have sworn myself off such driving - can\'t put others and myself in danger because I now realize how dangerous driving without proper sleep really is.

Shocked to hear this!
He will always be fondly of the best comedians of the recent times.
Punjabi comedy scene will never be the same from now on.

R.I.P. Jaspal Bhatti

:OT He died in a Honda Accord. It only came with 2 Airbags. Seems like he wasn\'t on the front seats. And wasn\'t belted up.It was an almost head on collision.

Tragic incident, R.I.P. Apart from being a good comedian/actor he was great human being.

Accident occured close to where I live & the Hospital he was taken to happens to be my cousins.

In today\'s world and times, it is rare to find people that spread joy, humor and laughter. Folks that touch and influence countless lives; sometimes without even knowing it. 2012 is indeed the year of deaths - so many adored personalities have left us. Bhatti paaji was indeed a master of satire, and we used to look forward to the next episode of \'The Flop Show\' with bated breaths. It was literally a weekly family event! I\'m sure we were not in a club of one.

RIP Mr. Bhatti.
