Published on 17 March, 2018 at 5:52 pm By

It has now been four years since AIB Knockout took place in Mumbai and nearly three years since the video from that even went viral.

But despite this, the heated argument around the Roast refuses to die down with even the Bombay High Court extending the matter further and not providing relief to the culprits.

The latest hearing on the matter took place on March 13 when a bench of Justice R M Savant and Justice Sarang Kotwal refused to grant interim relief to actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor on an FIR that was filed against them and other celebrities for the show.

The FIR had alleged the duo and other stars of using obscene language during the AIB Knockout performance in Mumbai and said the show was “vulgar, obscene and pornographic.”

The incident had taken place on December 20, 2014, when Ranveer and Arjun, along with 10 other celebrities which included Karan Johar, Deepika Padukone, and members of the AIB team, had performed at a charity event in Worli, Mumbai.

The show’s concept was based on SNL Roast from the US where actors and celebrities make fun of each other attacking their personal life.

A video from the event had soon gone viral on social media and taking offense to the content, a social activist in February 2015 filed a complaint with the chief metropolitan magistrate of Girgaon court and then another FIR was filed in Pune by the locals.

Hearing this the High Court bench refused the actors’ plea interim relief and directed their lawyer to first serve a copy of their plea to one of the complainants.

On this, a close source to director Karan Johar said that the filmmaker is blaming the actors’ legal woes on himself as he didn’t realise that the show would backfire so badly.

He also seems to have told his close friends that he feels responsible for the two actors and will stand by them and extend all kinds of legal support that he can to help them come out of it.

Karan in past has worked with Arjun Kapoor in the movie ‘2 States’ and is currently producing Ranveer Singh’s upcoming film, ‘Simmba’.
