‘AIB Knockout’ was a roast comedy show, starring Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor as the roast and Karan Johar as the host(roast master).

The show, uploaded on YouTube, went viral on the site but invited flak from various sections of society for the use of expletives.

Police initiated an inquiry into a complaint against Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Singh. AIB pulled down the video due to the wide-spread criticism.
