Steps such as preventing the entry of minors and announcing the content was adult were taken keeping the nature of the AIB Roast in mind, said comedian Rohan Joshi, who participated in the show, in his statement to the police on Wednesday.

“In his statement, Joshi said the nature of the show was announced on the loudspeaker and only adults were allowed in. He said the show was on the lines of an American show. The duo —Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor — agreed to be a part of the show, after hearing the script and said the money should be given to charity,” said an official from the Tardeo police.

“Joshi said the AIB team decided to get Karan Johar on board after watching his popular television show. He also provided documents and agreements regarding the donation for charity,” he said.

An FIR was registered against 14 people related to the show after an activist moved court claiming the show hurt public sentiments.
