     Jaspal Bhatti gets Padma Bhushan posthumously

New Delhi, January 26 2013

Jaspal Bhatti, the genial sardar who not just brought on a smile but also provoked introspection with his biting wit and satire, has been posthumously named Padma Bhushan honour on the eve of 64th Republic Day.

An electrical engineer by profession, Bhatti, said to be the most popular Sikh comedian, carved a niche for himself with Ulta-Pulta, which was regularly telecast on Doordarshan. It was followed by "Flop Show", a satire on social issues, which became a huge hit on the small screen.

In 1999, Bhatti produced and directed the popular Punjabi film Mahaul Theek Hai, a satire on the Punjab Police, administration and society.

Jaspal Bhatti, the quintessential entertainer, passed away after a road accident in October. He was 57.
