I am ashamed of Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh: Aamir Khan
Earlier we reported on how Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan disapproved of Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor’s “offensive” AIB Roast. The latest to back them with this discontent is none other than, Aamir Khan. Yes! During a recent event, the Satyamev Jayate host chose to slam the whole AIB episode even further by bracketing it under terms like violence, shame, disrespect and abuse. Whoa!
Mr. Perfectionist further elaborated on how the show was more violent than funny. ” I felt it was a very violent event. Violence is not only physical but also emotional and verbal. When you’re insulting someone, you’re perpetuating violence onto someone. And you’re also showing this off to the world like look! How violent I am!”, said the 49-year old actor.
While Several Bollywood celebrities took to Twitter and shared their discontent on the unjustified controversy surrounding AIB Knockout- The Roast of Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor. Celebs like Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Anushka Sharma and Ram Gopal Verma were among the few who were all out to support the AIB troop. Aamir Khan usually prefers staying out from issues that don’t involve him. But at a recent event, the PK actor surprisingly spoke open about the AIB controversy and said he is ashamed of KJo, Arjun and Ranveer. Yes!
Though the actor hasn’t watched the whole episode, here are 7 shocking remarks made by the PK actor on the AIB Knockout:# The night the Roast happened, Karan Johar and Arjun Kapoor had come and told me about all the jokes etc. I was deeply affected. I was most disappointed in what I was hearing. I completely believe in Freedom of Speech but we have to understand we all have a certain responsibility.
# I felt it was a very violent event. Violence is not only physical but also emotional and verbal. When you’re insulting someone, you’re perpetuating violence onto someone. And you’re also showing this off to the world like ‘look! How violent I am!
#I’m sure a lot of people have liked the show and we all may have different opinions… we are allowed to have different opinions… But I’ll give you my opinion… I thought it was a very violent show and I didn’t like it.
#Karan and Arjun are both my friends and I scolded them both saying that I didn’t find it funny. If you think 25 abuses can impress me, then you’re wrong. I’m not 14 anymore; abusive language doesn’t excite me. If you can make me laugh without hurting anyone, that I’ll appreciate. I don’t think jokes about the colour of skin or one’s sexuality are funny at all.
#I personally have a problem with the concept of the show is why I haven’t watched it. Yeh mere type ka show nahi hai, mujhe nahi dekhna.
# I’ve also seen a lot of AIB shaming and lynching happening publicly. I don’t believe in that either. Who are we to ban anything? If I don’t like something you’ve done, I should communicate it to you in strong and firm words. I can tell them I got very disturbed by what you did… more so, because you did it in public… please don’t do it again. And that’s the extent I can interfere in someone’s life. Who am I to decide how anyone is going to conduct themselves?
#There should be an age lock at least. When I did Delhi Belly, I applied for an A certificate. I went out of my way during promotions to tell everyone that ours is an adult film, and please don’t come watch it if that’s not your scene. As a creative person, do I have the liberty to express? Yes! But I also have a responsibility.”
Well, this definitely gives us a new side to the AIB story! Your thoughts? In the comments please!
