MUMBAI -- Sonam Kapoor has supported comedian Tanmay Bhat's video of a mock conversation between Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar, saying she is in "shock with this overreaction".

The video has sparked a massive outrage with political parties and Bollywood celebrities, who reacted sharply to the comedian's portrayal of the music legend and cricket icon.

"Don't you guys think there are issues that are more important than @thetanmay snapchat jokes??? I'm in shock with this over reaction!

"Being living legends I know @sachin_rt and @mangeshkarlata don't even know and care about what's going on!stop spewing hate on their behalf!," Sonam, 30, posted on Twitter.

The "Neerja" star said Tanmay, who is a friend of her, did not make the video to show the legends in a poor light.

"Dear @thetanmay, being your friend I know what you say and do is never to offend, but to make people laugh...," she added.
