Shut up and take care of your own business, Russell to Aamir Khan


AIB Knockout has been in the news for quite some time for its controversial content. Many slammed the show for the vulgar content while some favours it to the extreme point. After Mahesh Bhatt and Sonakshi Sinha’s tryst over the show, now Aamir Khan came into the scanner for expressing his displeasure regarding the show. Reacting to Aamir’s displeasure, filmmaker Pooja Bhatt and noted comedian Russell Peters highly lashes out at the actor calling him “hypocritical and dangerous”.

Russell Peters, an extremely popular comedian with international fame, has asked Aamir Khan to shut up and mind his own business when it comes to comment on AIB Roast hosted by Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Karan Johar.

Lashing out at Aamir Khan, Pooja Bhatt said, "I feel it's hypocritical self-styled moralists and the Aamir Khans of the world, who are more frightening and injurious. I am appalled at his sudden self-righteous mode. He has completely forgotten his body of work - the double meaning song, 'Bhaag DK Bose' in Delhi Belly, and the PK poster where he left nothing to the ­imagination, putting Sunny Leone to shame," said Pooja.

Comedian Russel Peters slammed the actor and asked him to mind his own business.

"Seriously, who is he, the so-called artist, to say that he found it violent and that AIB and rest involved should have been responsible? He did not even see it! Someone please ask him to shut up and take care of his own business," Peters who was in India this weekend for a show, told Hindustan Times.

"He is an actor; not even a real artist. He goes in front of the camera and reads out lines that someone else has written. Then, he is giving his opinion about something that is honest!" he added.

Clearing the misconception about 'roast', Russell said, "You know, it's funny, the things we get angry about. We don't get pissed when a politician comes up on stage and lies on our faces, but we get angry when someone speaks the truth."

The Canadian stand-up comic also met AIB comedians Tanmay Bhatt and Gursimran Khamba and congratulated them on their effort. "I met Tanmay and Khamba and patted them on their back and said they should feel proud!"
