Following the show, FIRs were filed against Ranveer Singh, Arjun
Kapoor, Karan Johar and also Deepika Padukone who was actually a
part of the audience and did not participate in the act.
FIRs were filed against the stars under Section 294 (obscene act
in public place) and Section 509 (act intended to insult modesty of
women) of the Indian Penal Code.
A hearing was held at Bombay High Court on Monday regarding the
case where actress Deepika Padukone argued that she just attended
the show but was not part of the Roast.
Deepika's lawyer also reitterated the same saying, "The
Maharashtra Region and Town Planning Act does not apply as she was
a spectator. Sections 294 and 509 cannot be applied."
Being satisfied with the arguments made by Happy New
Year actress Deepika Padukone and her lawyer, the Court asked
the police not to arrest Deepika till March 16th, which happens to
be the last day of the hearing.
