Deepika, Ranveer Singh face jail for public display of intimacy?
Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Karan Johar have received a lot of flak from the Censor Board and various socio-political groups for being a part of AIB Knockout- The Roast.
For those unaware, AIB Knockout: The Roast had put Arjun and Ranveer in the cross hairs of comedic barbs. A panel was selected, made up of the celebrity's peers as well as popular comedians, who comically trashed the 'guest' both personally and professionally.
The roast master was popular movie maker Karan Johar.
After being part of 'The Roast' all three film personalities were subject to moral policing.
As if all the controversy surrounding the AIBRoast wasn't already enough, now Ranveer's alleged girlfriend Deepika Padukone has been dragged into this controversy.
Reports suggest a case has been filed against Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone.
And why? Before getting on the stage, Ranveer kissed Deepika on the cheek. Yes, for kissing on the cheek – this has been made an issue.
According to reports, the AIB gang – and everyone associated with the roast, including Ranveer, Deepika and Karan Johar - has been accused of selling pornography and obscenity in a public place.
Everyone named as the primary accused will face a maximum jail term of two years along with a fine of Rs. 2000 (INR).
Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha and Alia Bhatt have come under fire for attending a charity show organised by AIB, which is one of India's premiere comedy collectives run by Tanmay Bhat, Ashish Shakya, Rohan Joshi and Gursimran Khamba.
The AIB show was held in the mid-December 2014 and the video of the edited version of the show was released on YouTube on 28 January.
Following the controversy and uncalled for uproar the video was pulled down from YouTube.
Along with the AIB team, Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor were seen entertaining the crowed with jokes at the event, which witnessed the presence of many Bollywood celebrities.
Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt and a few other actresses were seen enjoying jokes upon them.
