Lucknow: An FIR has been lodged against the participants of the controversial ‘AIB Roast’ show by the Lucknow police. The list includes the likes of Bollywood director Karan Johar and actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor. According to the FIR, they might face a jail term for upto 3 years.
According to the complaint filed by Kailash Chandra Pandey, a Lucknow-based activist, the spread of the controversial video, which went viral on social media, has ‘vulgar’ content and goes ‘against Indian culture’.
A case under section 294 of the Indian Penal Code section 66 of the IT Act has been filed against the three celebrities.
“It is shocking for me to find my nine-year-old kid watching such a video. We should discourage circulating this stuff, or else it would have adverse effect on our culture,” said Pandey, who is convener of social outfit Rashtriya Shahari Vikas Samiti.
