Seems like Aamir Khan‘s reaction to the AIB Roast hasn’t earned him much accolades from the industry. While the Twitterati has declared him a person of double standards, most of the industry members haven’t liked the self righteous mode of the ‘PK’ actor.
According to an interview published in Hindustan Times, stand up comic of International fame Russell Peters, has outrightly condemned Aamir’s stand against the AIB Roast videos. “Seriously, who is he, the so-called artist, to say that he found it violent and that AIB and rest involved should have been responsible? He did not even see it! Someone please ask him to shut up and take care of his own business. He is an actor; not even a real artist. He goes in front of the camera and reads out lines that someone else has written. Then, he is giving his opinion about something that is honest!” said the Canadian funnyman of Indian origin.
Russell Peters, who was in India recently, even went ahead and explained the concept of Roast, which according to him the Indians might be unaware of. “I don’t know if they even understand what it is. It is a roast, where you put someone stage and say the most honest things, in the most brutal, nastiest manner. And in return, they do the same to you. And it’s not the type of comedy where you go behind someone’s back and stab them. It’s honest, it’s in your face,” he said.
Earlier, in another interview to Hindustan Times, Pooja Bhatt had strongly come out against his ‘Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahin’ co-star and said, “I feel it’s hypocritical self-styled moralists and the Aamir Khans of the world, who are more frightening and injurious. I am appalled at his sudden self-righteous mode. He has completely forgotten his body of work — the double meaning song, ‘Bhaag DK Bose’ in Delhi Belly, and the ‘PK’ poster where he left nothing to the imagination, putting Sunny Leone to shame.”
