All India Bakchod (AIB) went viral soon after it was uploaded on the YouTube channel. In a day the videos reached hundred crore viewership. The roasting of actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor was very offensive and vulgar which is completely against Indian culture. Not just this roasting and the jokes were also made on some famous personalities too who were not present at the show.
With 4,000 people sitting in the auditorium had no objection with the vulgar jokes and offensive language. The crowd was seen enjoying and applauding on every joke. The audience included famous Bollywood stars like Sanjay Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha and director Anurag Kashyap.
In India being offended is pretty much statutory right across the censor board, but AIB has reached where no one could have thought of. The entire AIB team has come in to a trouble, as Maharashtra government has declared that they will probe the AIB roast of actors Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor too.
The videos uploaded in three parts have gone viral but the makers are now facing problems with the law for usage of obscene language and the use of obscene content.
Vinod Tawde, Cultural Affairs Minister in the Maharashtra ministry has deemed the video vulgar and stated that an FIR will be lodged against the performers who have performed without the necessary license. Charges will be applied and a case will be filed based on the issues found during the investigation.
AIB knock out team has nothing to say on this; they do not have any further details about the inquiry going on.

Yes, the show was vulgar, offensive, racist and a lot more. The show begins by warning the viewers about the filth to come.
The edited version of the AIB Knockout roast of Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh already has millions of views in two days. AIB had a panel along with Rajeev Masand, Raghu Ram, Aditi Mittal and Karan Johar ‘roasted’ each other.
Roasting, if you didn’t know is a comedic art form that originated in 1949 in New York and has been adapted across the world since.
