Not just the concept of roast, All India Bakchod seemed to have lifted liberal helpings of offensive jokes from Comedy Central's celebrity roast
On January 28, two young talented rising stars from Bollywood, along with one of the most renowned filmmakers of B-t0wn, broke the internet by doing something insanely crazy. The trio of Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Karan Johar, showed how they are the biggest sport in Bollywood, by accepting to be roasted by All India Bakchod in front of a huge crowd. And don't even get me started on the jokes, as they were so good that they could easily have given heart attack to half of the nation.
While the Roast of Arjun-Ranveer cracked me up, but by some extensive research I found that AIB lifted from the roast of Pamela Anderson and Charlie Sheen. Without any more delay, I bring you four jokes which were aped from the west to leave you in splits:
Live Aids Vs STD
Did you chuckle like a retard when AIB's Ashish Shakya said these words out loud," Ranveer, you did an ad for Durex. This is the first time I saw a condom being endorsed by STD". While I thought the joke was extremely cool, but I stumbled on to a joke in Pamela Anderson's roast which sounded way too familiar. In Pamela's roast, roast master Jimmy Kimmel calls fellow panelist Dennis Rodman Live Aids. So you can clearly see from where Ranveer Singh's personification of STD was ripped off.
Pete Sampras' down syndrome vs Vishal Dadlani's chemo
KJo was quite vocal about his thoughts about Roadies host Raghu Ram. In AIB Knockout, Karan called Raghu as 'Vishal Dadlani who got chemo'. While this joke was well received by the audience, I am sorry to say that it was not original. In Pamela Anderson's roast, Greg Geraldo calls fellow panelist Adam Corrola as 'Pete Sampras with down syndrome'.
Pamela Anderson vs Tanmay Bhatt
I almost spat the water out of my mouth when Arjun Kapoor thanked AIB's Tanmay Bhatt for letting them have the show inside him, making a nasty dig at his body. While millions of us savoured the tasteless joke, even this jibe has been lifted from Anderson's roast. The roaster Nick Depaulo shocked everyone when he compared Pamela's vag**a with the cave featured in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins.
Charlie Sheen's description vs Karan Johar's description
While introducing the panel, KJo described AIB as a bunch of cocaine addicts, perverts, drama queen and an a#$hole. If you think this was extremely offensive, you should here what Charlie Sheen had to say about the panel on his roast. Charlie Sheen said," Through my life I have hung with a lot of shady people - losers. hookers, drug addicts..but to have you all here together in one night is special."
