AIB Roast: Mahesh Bhatt thanks Sonakshi Sinha for 'sane' response

Mumbai: The AIB knockout roast controversy is getting murkier by the day. Veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, father of Alia Bhatt, one of the actresses present at the AIB event, has reportedly questioned the alleged preferential treatment given to Sonakshi Sinha, daughter of BJP leader and MP Shatrughan Sinha.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate C.S. Baviskar of the fourth Girgaum Court directed police in Tardeo to probe the matter against officials of the National Sports Club of India (NSCI), AIB Roast and many film personalities after a criminal complaint was lodged by social activist Santosh Daundkar.

Lawyer Abha Singh said the accused named were NSCI president Jayantilal Shah, secretary-general Ravinder Aggarwal, AIB Roast organisers, film personalities Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor, Ranvir Singh, Rohan Joshi, Tanmay Bhatt, Gursimran Khamba, Ashish Shakya, Aditi Mittal, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, film critic Rajeev Masand, and other unidentified people from the NSCI and 'AIB Roast' show who took part in the "pornographic, obscene and vulgar show". But Sonakshi's name (who was also among the list of attendees) was missing in the list. Sonakshi seems to have taken offense to Bhatt’s remarks. She took to Twitter to write:

Bhatt is apparently impressed by Sonakshi's maturity. He responded to her tweets by writing:

Earlier in the day, Bhatt took to Twitter to write:

A Mumbai court Thursday ordered police to investigate and register an FIR against 14 celebrities involved in the controversial show performed in a stadium here Jan 20. The complainant invoked several sections of the India Penal Code, the Information Technology Act, Bombay Police Act, Environment Protection Act and Monopolistic and Restrictive Trade Practice Act in the case.
