“A beautiful, young girl I love dearly became the butt of racist jokes,” says Aamir Khan. And of course, this has to trend! And so it does.
He further explains: “I’m aware that if you sign up for the Roast, you sign up to insult each other. But, in this case, even those who hadn’t signed up were being targeted, like Farida Jalal, Reema Lagoo and a beautiful, young girl I love dearly. The young girl whom I’ve known since she was a kid, was the butt of racist and sexist jokes. She did not even know that a live audience was watching this and couldn’t protect herself. That is unfair! This is what I meant when I described the show as ‘violent’. Films which depict violence are fictional but this young girl is real. So my reaction was more emotional than moralistic.”
Who is this young girl?
”If two consenting adults wish to insult each other, that’s their problem. But you can’t go around attacking anyone you feel like. That is no different from the physical violence we see around us and object to. And when someone uses the words “shut up”, it makes me believe that these people are certainly not a part of the group that is for freedom of speech,” he adds.
But again, who is this young girl that he is talking about? Any guesses?
