The burning issue in the Entertainment sector currently is the AIB Roast which ran into controversy thanks to its bold content. As Bollywood personalities, Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh were a part of it, a lot of the industry people have been giving their opinions about the same. At a recent event, media questioned Aamir Khan to share his views on the Roast controversy and what he said came as no surprise.
The politically correct star said, “I don’t like to show you violence. I am sure there are lot of young people who have liked the show. My opinion is that it was a violent show. Karan (Johar) and Arjun (Kapoor) are my friends and I scolded them and told them that I was not impressed with it. I am not someone who can laugh at abuses and bad language, I think I have passed that age. I am not a 14 year-old who will laugh at abuses. I am not impressed. I personally have a problem with what they have done, therefore I have not seen the show. I felt that this is not my type of show, that’s why I haven’t seen it.”
Calling the use of abusive language a ‘verbal violence’, the actor said, “I have not yet seen that roast, but I have heard a lot about it roast’. And I have seen 2-3 clips of that, I was deeply affected by that and I was most disappointed in what I was hearing. I completely believe in freedom of speech no issues, but we have to understand we all have certain responsibilities. When I heard what was being described to me I felt it was a very violent event. I do not like such things. Violence does not mean only physical, it can be verbal too. When you insult someone, you are perpetuating violence. When you are abusing or insulting someone, you are showing the world how violent you are.”
