Featuring at AIB Knockout Video proved costly for film actors Ranveer Singh and Arjin Kapoor along with ace Producer-Director Karan Johar, as the show has attracted the ire of political outfit Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) who had asked for inconditional apology from them. This has fuelled the State Government to probe the show. Actually, the opposition was derived from the objection raised by a religious group. Not only the film personalities, the makers of the show are also at the helm of controversy now. MNS has threatened that they would not let the release of any of the films of these celebs unless they tender apology.

The concerned religious group has raised objection over the video named AIB Knockout that roasted actors Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.

Ameya Khopkar, president, Maharashtra Navnirman Chitrapat Sena, the film wing of the MNS said, “We will not let any film featuring the actors present at the AIB comedy show to be released in Mumbai, until they apologise for their actions.

“What kind of message are we giving to the world outside? What if small children, who follow Ranveer and Arjun, watch this show? Will they not be spoiled after watching such shows?”

Khopkar said that while his party did not intend to play the Censor Board or restrict freedom of speech he said that such shows will never be tolerated.
