No relief to Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor from HC for “AIB Roast Master”

On January 20, 2013, the show “AIB Roast Master” happened at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in an indoor stadium. It was a roast comedy show starring Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor as the roast and Karan Johar as the Host i.e. the roast master. Later, the show was uploaded on Youtube on 28th January 2015 and it immediately went viral.

Basically, the case was against the use of verbally abusive and vulgar language. Many people are not happy with the language used and hence they complained against it to the Mumbai Police to take actions towards it.


The FIR was registered even after they removed the controversial video from the Youtube. The case was filed after the court order. The case was filed against 14 people including Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh. They appealed a tender apology to the public and the visited religious group who was offended and hurt by the content used in the video of AIB.


The actors had filed a petition in the court and sought to finish the First Information Report (FIR) registered by the Mumbai police against them. But the Bombay High Court has not provided any relief to Bollywood actors Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the AIB Roast Case. The court rejected the petition of both the actors and set April 3 as the next date of hearing for the case.

They even claimed in their plea that the FIRs against them bore an ulterior motive. They also claimed that the FIRs were filed with a ‘mischievous’ and mala fide intent and sought that the same be quashed.

Many spoke in favor of the show by saying that we have the freedom of speech but Aamir Khan said that “With freedom, responsibilities also come, so we should maintain that”.

Shahrukh Khan said, “He would not like to take sides saying that humor has always been a tricky thing and it always generates different reactions”.

Meanwhile, at that time Ranveer Singh got to listen to an earful from Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Bhansali said to Ranveer that, “You should maintain your images like Salman and Shahrukh Khan not like a chichora”.
