All India Bakchod (AIB) recently conducted the roast of Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh

Recently the AIB Roast was in headlines. Well, technically it still is, but that’s not the point here. The responses that the “Roast” gathered were of mixed opinions. And turns out, most people are born with a sense of humour, and were able to digest the jokes made on the show.

This has lead to the Maharashtra government ordering an inquiry into the show.

“Officials of the Culture Department will examine the (AIB show) videos for the content. If found vulgar, an action will be initiated,” Maharashtra Cultural Affairs Minister Vinod Tawde said.

And here’s what the junta thinks:

And this:

Peace out people. Go grow yourself a funny bone.
