Addressing AIB Roast as a 'porn show', CBFC member Ashoke Pandit ridiculed Karan Johar with a nasty tweet which created a fresh controversy.
Ashoke Pandit did found some support in his campaign against the makers of AIB Roast, also called AIB Knockout but he also faced several criticisms for the language he used on the social networking site to abuse Karan Johar.
However, Ashoke Pandit now comes up in self-defence asserting that he has to answer vulgarity with vulgarity. "I am a fan of Karan Johar's cinema and am extremely hurt by what he has done on stage. He makes films that promote core Indian values and people look upto him but when he endorses a show like this (AIB Roast), it sends out a wrong message to the youth of the nation," said Ashoke Pandit.
Ashoke Pandit was severely criticised for the language he used on Twitter to slam Karan Johar and AIB Roast for which the CBFC member replies saying, "I can't answer AIB's vulgarity with charity. I have to send out the message loud and clear and for that I have to use a language that they understand. The tweet is just an extension of the roast."
