AIB Knockout – 7 Tips To Help Overcome The Offensiveness Of The AIB Roast.

The AIB Knockout between Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh which was organised in south Mumbai on December 20 gave the Indian audience a taste of “Roasting”, a first of its kind in India. Roasts is basically a genre of comedy, which first began as a tradition of the New York Friar’s Club, where they were held in private as far back as the 1920s.

What the Hell is AIB Knockout?

A roast basically comprises of a shit load of insults thrown at the subject(s) to be roasted and also at every other roaster  present in the panel including the roast master (which in this case was the one and only.. Mr.Karan Johar!)

The Panel included The AIB folks Ashish Shakhya, Tanmay Bhatt, Gursimran Khamba, Rohan Joshi along with Abish Mathew, Aditi Mittal, The Roadies Raghu Ram and Rajeev Masand.

Since roasting is a form of an insult comedy, it gets pretty vulgar at times. But this didn’t stop the AIB team from giving India its very own comedy roast show in 3 parts! was it accepted gracefully by the Indian audience?

With more than 3 million views in less than a week, I would say HELL YEAH! But as always, with every new thing introduced in society…..there comes a 43 year old man named Akhilesh Tiwari.

A resident of Mumbai, this is what he had to say “I have handed over a letter to Sakinaka police demanding a criminal complaint be lodged against these so-called youth icons Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. The show, which can be seen on YouTube and other websites, was extremely abusive and it is not only ruining the clean image of the Indian culture & women, but is also misleading today’s youth.”

A difference of opinion in certain matter is totally understandable and respected. But considering the fact that he wasn’t forced to watch the roast and also the fact that the audience was warned in the part one itself that the video was gonna be filthy and dirty and abusive, I don’t see what the problem he faced really was.

For the welfare of the society and all the Akhilesh Tiwari’s out there, Campus Times would love to give you all a few helpful tips to avoid the trouble of a police complaint.

  • 1. If you don’t seem to like it, you could switch over to something you prefer watching …*cough cough..porn…cough*.

  • 2. Do not worry about the misleading of the youth..they are apparently smarter than you are at this point.
  • 3. Do not worry about image of Indian women…they are smarter than you at this point too. (which leaves you at the bottom of the list)
  • 4. By the “clean image” of Indian culture, if you mean all the Delhi rapes and other crimes regarding women happening on a regular basis…then I must say we have referred to two VERY different dictionaries which state the definition of clean images.
  • 5. Take deep breaths and learn to understand the fact that if 3 million people have viewed and liked the roast, and you were the only one who registered a complaint against it…….you might need some help.
  • 6. Just chill out manh. Learn to have a slight sense of humour. If you watch a COMEDY roast, and take things literally from a COMEDY roast and get offended by a COMEDY roast……you might need some help with that too.
  • 7. And again, if you don’t like it, don’t watch it 🙂
