If you’re a frequent Instagram user, you’re probably familiar with Vikas Phatak, aka Hindustani Bhau. He’s been a regular fixture on the social networking site for over a year thanks to the infamous “Pehle fursat me nikal” meme. He garnered a reputation for utilizing boldness and profanity in his video content, primarily addressing what’s going in politics, entertainment and society.

Bhau’s prominence on the internet earned him a YouTube creator award last year and a slot in the 13th edition of reality show Bigg Boss.

Things went out of hand for the Instagram star after igniting a feud versus director Ekta Kapoor, calling her an “anti-national, disrespecting the Indian military and defaming the country” after her ALTBalaji web series, XXX2 featured a scene of a woman getting intimate with her boyfriend after forcing him to wear a uniform of the Indian Army, while her husband, who’s a soldier, was at war.

Bhau filed a complaint against Kapoor and later confessed he received calls by big names from the Bollywood industry convincing him to stop the feud, followed by another video going against stand-up comedian’s jokes about the existence of Hinduism.

Yesterday, Bhau took to Instagram saying he’s putting his social commentary to an end, with thousands of followers in disbelief of his decision. However, it isn’t a full stop for the social media star. He says he will do live sessions on the social media site once in a while.
