A couple of days after the AIB Knockout roast went viral on the internet, a censor board member tweeted against the 'porn show on stage', and particularly Karan Johar, who was the roastmaster at the event.
Karan Johar could have easily shown his position while performing sex to his mom at home instead of making it public.#AIB Porn Show.— Ashoke Pandit (@ashokepandit) February 3, 2015
An unfazed Johar took to Twitter to reply to Pandit.
Not your cup of tea...don't drink it!!!— Karan Johar (@karanjohar) February 3, 2015
A lot of voices came out both in support of and against his statement and the show itself.
So nice to see twitter is filled with such angels who point out hypocrisy n never use foul language n have nvr laughed at dirty jokes (haw)— Sonakshi Sinha (@sonakshisinha) February 3, 2015

When you simultaneously piss off Salman Khan and religious nuts, you must be doing something right. #AIBRoast— Utsav Chakraborty (@SatanBhagat) February 2, 2015
#AIBRoast is what we all need; an ability to laugh at ourselves is a state of self-actualization. Bhakts, Sanghis, BJP acolytes can sulk!— Sanjay Jha (@JhaSanjay) February 3, 2015
Karan Johar's sex-parody of Tum Paas Aaye in AIB roast was one of the worst things I've had the bad judgement to see in ages.That's humour??— Mehr Tarar (@MehrTarar) January 31, 2015

@ashokepandit I feel that the AIB roast was a complete Gay propaganda tool to subvert young minds.— Inquisitiv_indian (@Inquisitive_Ind) February 3, 2015

Pandit later defended his tweets against Johar, saying he was only reacting to the way in which the filmmaker and the other brilliant actors used such kind of language which should not be spoken at a public show.
"They can't use the language in public that is not decent in any form," he said, adding, "the entire show was abnormal".
"I have reacted because I am a Karan Johar fan, Ranveer Singh fan, Arjun Kapoor man....I have very right to do that. And if they feel about my tweet if they are hurt about my tweet, they can consider it as an extension of their roast," he said in Jaipur.
As of now, the event and the stars awaits probe by Maharashtra government on 'appropriate clearences'.
