AIB roast video, featuring Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor with Karan Johar as Roast master got massive reaction from the social media but ran into trouble when several organisations filed FIR against the alleged obscene nature of the content. Their voice got louder with censor board member Ashoke Pandit also coming out heavily against the AIB roast video, calling it obscene.
But the final nail in the coffin for AIB may have been the view taken by Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis. Maharashtra Chief Minister commented upon this incident. “If the AIB roast was vulgar and not in accordance with the law, then we will act.”
Maharashtra government on Monday ordered an inquiry into a comedy show held here even as police launched a probe following a complaint against filmmaker Karan Johar, actor Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, among others, for allegedly using “filthy and abusive language” during the event.
According to the written complaint by Akhilesh Tiwari, president of Brahman Ekta Seva Sanstha in Mumbai, filed at Sakinaka police station on Monday, the trio, along with other performers, had allegedly passed abusive and offensive remarks against one another and at the audience present there, police said.
In his four-page complaint at Sakinaka police station, Tiwari sought a criminal case against Johar, Kapoor and Singh as well as the show organiser, among others.
“I have handed over a letter to Sakinaka police demanding a criminal complaint be lodged against these so-called youth icons Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. The show, which can be seen on YouTube and other websites, was extremely abusive and it is not only ruining the clean image of the Indian culture & women but is also misleading today’s youth,” said Tiwari.
