Aamir Khan, Aamir Khan AIB Roast, Tarun Mansukhani Dostana’ director Tarun Mansukhani tweeted a link of Aamir Khan’s old interview on ‘Delhi Belly’ where the actor had spoken in defence of his production and wrote: “I ask u nt 2 b so callous n b a responsible celebrity.”

The usually sporting and a socially conscientious Aamir Khan recently shared his thoughts on the much-discussed AIB ‘roast’ of Arjun Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Karan Johar. The actor even said that he had scolded his friends Arjun Kapoor and filmmaker Karan Johar for participating in the roast, which Aamir Khan thought was highly offensive and extremely violent. “My opinion is that it was a violent show. Karan (Johar) and Arjun (Kapoor) are my friends and I scolded them and told them that I was not impressed with it,” Aamir Khan had said.

However, the ‘PK’ actor has been receiving a lot of backlash for expressing his opinion. Some claim that the actor who produced black comedy film, ‘Delhi Belly’ and had an item song ‘Bhaag D.K. Bose’, has double standards. Back then, Aamir had justified the use of cuss words in the film, claiming he was not against freedom of speech. (Read: Aamir Khan’s reaction on AIB Roast’)

      AIB KNOCKOUT 1). Does freedom of expression means no moral values? 2). What legacy are we leaving behind for our coming generations? 3). What will be its social implication? 4). My child follows Ranbir as an idol. What if he watches this show? 5). So far, it was with beeps, now abusing openly. What is next? 6). What will be the difference between a bollywood star and a road side eve teaser? 7). Which religion teaches us to abuse? 8). Will it not promote the ongoing rate of rapes and ual abuses in the country? 9). What about the Indian heritage and culture? 10). What about the image of India world wide? 11). Today it is roast of Bollywood. Tomorrow it will be between employee and employer and then between a father and son. 12). We can watch Kapil Sharma’s comedy with family. Can we do the same here? 13). If you say that there are so many other contents available online. It is the choice of the viewer. Then, where comes the social and moral responsibility. Is this what we have to offer to the society. 14). Is it cool? Is it a new fashion statement? What is next, then? 14). Last, not the least, if they are not guilty. Why have they removed the link now?

        u r comparing a movie with a live show...with people who are not playing any character in a story...but actually abusing other people with direct references..gosh, that's more horrible..somehow now a days raising an objection against profanity, vulgarity and obscenity is often viewed as hypocrite, old values, moral policing and direct ault on freedom of speech...just dont understand where is the plain good humor gone..laughing is a free gift to humans...lets use sensibly..ofcourse there will be a million of those who still support such shows...I

          It's not about whether the show is obscene or not. It is all about whether Aamir khan has any right to get offended or not. And he most certainly does not have any right to get offended given the fact that he has made films that are more obscene than this live show.

              My uncalled for advise to filmi buffs: STOP TAKING AAMIR SERIOUSLY. HE IS A SELL OUT.
