From ‘Roast’ to being ‘burnt’, the AIB Knockout row is hot and spicy

We bring to you the story, the AIB Roast Recipe, as and when it happened:

AIB, AIB Roast, AIB Knockout, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Karan Johar
AIB tried ‘roasting’ Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor and literally ‘burning’ filmmaker Karan Johar in front of as many as 4000 people at a Mumbai stadium.

One fine day in December, a comedy collective, All India Bakchod, experimented with fire. They tried ‘roasting’ Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor and literally ‘burning’ filmmaker Karan Johar in front of as many as 4000 people at a Mumbai stadium. The audience enjoyed, they were thrilled, but what followed thereafter was not half as thrilling.

Anger and resentment over the ‘filth and dirt’ splurged over the stars present at the event took over Twitter and other social media platform. AIB was the moot point of all conversations.
