AIB Roast video pulled out from YouTube

The controversial AIB Roast video has been taken down from video sharing website YouTube two days after the Maharashtra government initiated a probe into allegations of “abusive and filthy” language used by Bollywood personalities in it. The video, which went viral on the online video sharing platform since being posted Jan 28, was pulled out Tuesday night.

The official Twitter handle of the comic group AIB posted: “Have taken down AIB Knockout for now. We will speak soon.” 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.
