AIB roast wasn’t funny, it was violent: Aamir Khan
Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan feels expletive-laced AIB Roast was not funny rather it ‘perpetuated verbal and emotional violence’ and those who were involved should face the consequences if any law has been broken.
The PK star, who has seen only two clips of the show, said he found it very disturbing and had scolded friends Karan Johar and Arjun Kapoor for being a part of it.
“I have not seen the entire roast but I have heard about it and I have seen 2-3 clips of it... I was deeply affected by that. I scolded them (Karan and Arjun) and said ‘I don’t find it funny’. I personally have a problem with it.
“When the roast happened, I happened to be at a place where Karan and Arjun came and told us that we did this roast.
I was deeply affected by that. I was most disappointed in what I was hearing... I felt it was a very violent event. Violence is not only physical, it can be verbal and emotional too. When you insult someone, you perpetuate violence,” Aamir told students at an event on Monday.
The roast has sparked many controversies and an FIR has been filed against Johar, Kapoor and Singh.
Aamir, said if they have broken any law they should face the consequences but there should be no “witch-hunting” against them. The actor in the past had produced Delhi Belly, a movie which had a lot of ‘expletives’ but he said he had informed people that it was meant for adults only.
