Bollywood filmmaker and producer Mahesh Bhatt, father of Alia Bhatt who was part of the AIB Knockout show audience, had expressed his displeasure after an FIR was filed against his daughter and not against BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter Sonakshi.

But in a series of tweets addressed to Mahesh Bhatt, actress Sonakshi Sinha said that there had been many FIRs filed in cities – Delhi and Kolkata – against the AIB roast in which she has been named and not his daughter Alia.

Mahesh Bhatt had said there is a conspiracy at play. “Alia was a participant and also subjected to the humour. The FIR names Deepika Padukone and Alia among the participants. Why not the other 3,998 attendees of the show? More importantly, if it names celebrities in the audience, why not Sonakshi Sinha,” he asked, drawing links to the latter’s actor father and BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha. Sonakshi was also seated in the audience and subjected to similar jokes by the show’s participants. “Clearly, certain forces are orchestrating this series of events. The answer is in my question,” he said.

Mahesh Bhatt quickly replied to Sonakshi and lauded her for a ‘SANE’ reply.

In the latest development on the AIB row, Mumbai police on Thursday registered an FIR against 14 persons, including Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar, actors Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and others who organised or participated in the AIB Knockout show held in Worli on January 20.

The FIR was filed under sections of the law pertaining to criminal conspiracy for staging an obscene show, using vulgar or pornographic words before an audience including women and for circulating obscene or pornographic content on the Internet, among others.

The FIR was ordered by Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate C S Baviskar of Girgaum Court based on a complaint by social activist Santosh Daundkar, who approached the court after the police failed to act on a written complaint.
