The man who made everybody laugh, left everyone grieving at the end. It was too shocking to learn about his death. I am sure his best was yet to come.
—PCC president Capt Amarinder Singh
Bhatti, through his rare sarcastic humor and wit, made enormous contributions in sensitising the general public, especially at the grass-roots level, in eradicating social evils from society
—Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.
He was a unique artiste. His comments were lucid but sharp in harping on his point in ridiculing the societal and political evils.
—Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh
His demise has left a vaccum in the Punjabi film industry. He popularised clean and socially relevant humour and his satire made people aware of their rights. He will always be remembered for his wit and humour.”
Anil Joshi, Cabinet Minister
“Received another shockingly terrible news of the demise of Jaspal Bhatti saab today. I don’t know what’s happening. So sad...”
Actor Jimmy Sheirgill
“I used to tell Jaspal Bhatti that he does fantastic comedy so seriously. He was also a great supporter of the anti-corruption campaign”
Anupam Kher
"Bhatti created social awareness using humour. He tackled social evils like corruption through his satire. May his soul rest in peace."
-AS Makkar, president, SGPC
"He had the art of doing comedy seriously. We will be dedicating our annual cultural festival (Oct 26, 27) to his memory"
-CS Chadha, Chief Khalsa Diwan
"He played an active role in revolutionarising political satire and had achieved a cult status"
Sumeet Singh, Mohd Rafi Memorial Society
"He helped increase awareness on social evils. His contribution to society is laudable."
Kanwarpal Singh, Dal Khalsa.

Bathinda, October 25
"Life is too small to worry. I live in the present.  This is what satirist Jaspal Bhatti said in his last interview to The Tribune during his visit to the city for promoting his movie "Power Cut 

Asked about his future projects, Bhatti had replied: "I live in the present. My present is to promote ‹“Power Cut that will add a new dimension to the peoples knowledge about the power sector in the state.  Bhatti, a retired senior Executive Engineer (XEN) with the erstwhile Punjab State Electricity Board (PSEB), was working on three scripts simultaneously.

The "Ulta-Pulta  man, called himself a crusader of peoples causes. "As an actor, I am fulfilling my duty to society with my satires. When I provoke a chuckle in the audience, my work is done. The onus then lies on the people whether or not to react to a situation, 

Amritsar, October 25
He was one from the masses who taught people to laugh at their own gripe. An incredible entertainer, he was a sharp satirist too. His untimely death has left the Punjabi entertainment industry in a shock.

Bhatti was born in Amritsar at the ancestral home of his maternal grandmother at Chowk Karori. "We had shared a room just hours before the accident. He had talked of the irony that Yash Chopras last directorial film is titled ‹“Jab Tak Hai Jaan. And today he is dead when his film, now his last, is to be released tomorrow,  said a tearful Arvinder Bhatti.

"I was with him while promoting the film in Ludhiana a few days ago. I was to join him in Chandigarh later. We were planning more promotional strategies. He was like a father-figure to me,  said Amritsar-based artiste Chandan Prabhakar, who has a role in "Power Cut .

Playwright Jaswant Jas described him as one of the pioneers in ‹“black comedy. Though Bhatti spent most of his early years in Nangal and Chandigarh, he briefly studied at DAV College, Amritsar. "He spent a year at the college and later shifted to Chandigarh. In 2003, we honoured him as a prominent alumnus of the college,  said KN Kaul, Principal, DAV College.

Power Cut actors hospitalised
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, October 25
Jasraj, Jaspal Bhattis son, and actors Surilie Gautam and Navneet Joshi were brought to the emergency ward of Dayanand Medical Hospital here this morning.

Jasraj, who was driving the vehicle, escaped with minor injuries as the air bag saved him. Surilie sustained a hip dislocation. She also had injuries on her leg. Navneet sustained injuries on the head.

He was said to be out of danger. A shocked Zafar Khan, who has an important role in "Power Cut  said: "We had reached Jalandhar when we learnt of the accident. I am devastated. Eberything was going on so well...  Jasraj was inconsolable when told about his fathers death. He refused to meet anybody.

Seat belt may have saved Bhatti

"Had Bhatti worn a seat belt, he may have been saved,  said a doctor at the hospital. Bhatti, who was on the rear seat, died of multiple skull fractures.

OBITUARY
He will be remembered for his wry one-liners
Bhatti dared to call spade a spade, and yet was an incredibly well-liked person
Nonika Singh

Jaspal Bhatti, the very mention of whose name would bring an involuntary smile to ones lips, today evokes a heartfelt emotion of deep loss. Satirist, comedian, actor, director and columnist with The Tribune, Bhattis untimely demise in a road accident in the wee hours of Thursday morning leaves behind a void that would be hard to fill.

‹“Irreplaceable is the word well-known comedian Gurpreet Ghuggi uses to describe Bhattis place in the world of laughter. He goes on to state that with him Punjab saw the advent of a new era of comedy that was a far cry from buffoonery. He says: "For here was a man who made people double up in laughter with his wry one-liners and not silly antics. 

Undeniably, Bhatti, who put Chandigarh on the laughter map of India and whose dead pan expression held millions in a thrall, set new refreshing standards of satire. He had the singular ability to infuse humour in everyday situations and address the common mans problems through wit and jibes. Sarcasm was his forte and he knew how to use it effectively and purposefully. The man who mocked at one and all had the cheek to poke fun at himself too. Samples of this are ample on his official website. Even the credit of his films, including the latest "Power Cut  that hits the cinema on Friday and marks the debut of his son Jasraj Bhatti reads - (mis)directed by Jaspal Bhatti. Today Punjabi films might be ruling the roost but remember it was way back in 1998 that his Punjabi film "Mahaul Theek Hai  broke records and ran for over 13 weeks. If in his last feature film he spoofed the police force, "Power Cut  is a satire on the states power situation. Incidentally, this Punjab Engineering College graduate had got his first job in the Punjab State Electricity Board. Ironically, the man who dared to call spade a spade was an incredibly well-liked person "for people understood that he had no axe to grind,  said his close associate and actor of many serials Vinod Sharma.

If his uncanny sense of humour pulsated in his works right from his popular serials like "Ulta-Pulta , "Flop Show  and the DVD film "Jija Ji  and much more, in person too he brimmed with it. Sharma recalls how Bhatti created a bouquet out of recycled products when he went to congratulate Rock Garden creator Nek Chand. The Nonsense Club that he founded in 1980s as a student of PEC was yet another testimony to his wacky ideas. But his barbs were not misplaced or misdirected. Not loud or vulgar either. No wonder Ghuggi says: "He never hurt anybody and even if he did lampoon them, I bet his subjects too would not have been able to resist a hearty laugh.  In fact, Ghuggi views him as someone who not only showed the way to many comedians of Punjab but also how to walk en route that path. One person who has walked along with Bhatti shoulder to shoulder is his wife Savita Bhatti. She has played an integral and stellar role in his work. Acting in his serials, she has been involved in his projects right from the stage of genesis, together creating work of consequence. Four years ago, to hone the talent of the region, they set up MadArts Jaspal Bhatti Film School.

Though Bhatti may not have got the credit for it, the fact remains that he was instrumental in carving a niche for the turbaned image of Sikhs, both on the television and in popular Hindi cinema. An actor of many Bollywood films like "Fanaa  and "Aa Ab Laut Chalen , he sincerely believed that the unflattering portrayal of Sikhs in the Hindi cinema was a thing of the past.

The son of Punjab born in Amritsar in 1955 aspired to make a Hindi film too. On the anvil was also the mission to set up Indias first comedy school. But dreams die young. In his case much was achieved, yet there were many more miles to go. Alas, at 57, he has fallen asleep forever.
