The comic group All India Bakchod has issued a statement on the whole controversy and why they decided to take off the video, while the actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor were grilled by the host and panel of celebrities.
The Roast, organised by a group of stand-up comedians called All India Bakchod (AIB), poked fun at the roastees – Bollywood actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, and was hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar.
Following complaints on the below-the-belt content of the programme, Education and Culture Minister Vinod Tawade ordered a probe Monday evening.
“The Culture Department officials will examine the videos’ content and if found vulgar, action would be initiated,” Tawade said.
Also, the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena on Tuesday demanded an apology from all the persons involved in the AIB Roast, and said that it would not allow Johar, Arjun and Ranveer’s movies to be screened if they do not apologies.
