A professor of law with Jitendra Chauhan Law College, Vile Parle, has filed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) against the now-controversial AIB Knockout show. Dr Sharmila Ghuge on Thursday filed a PIL in the Bombay High Court against “the use of abusive, vulgar and indecent words” in the AIB Knockout that featured the group of stand-up comics All India Bakchod (AIB) and Bollywood celebrities Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor, among others. The PIL will heard on Friday.

Ghuge says that while people speak of freedom of expression under the constitution, it comes with restrictions pertaining to morality and decency. “Making a joke about gangrape is in bad taste,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Pune city police have registered an offence against 14 persons including a Bollywood filmmaker and film stars for allegedly using obscene and abusive language during the event.
