Anushka Sharma’s cricketer- boyfriend Virat Kohli may have been the butt of jokes during the insult-comedy show — AIB Roast, but the actor feels such humour should not be taken seriously.
“The way I look at it, I think it was in a good humour. Not meant to be taken very seriously. This is my opinion and someone else may have a different opinion about it, and that is the beauty of a living in a democratic set-up,” she said at an event.
The celebrity roast — the first of its kind in India which featured a panelist of AIB members with filmmaker Karan Johar taking over the role of ‘roast master’, to grill Gunday (2014) stars Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor on their professional and personal lives, sparked a controversy for obscene language and content.
“This has been turned into a big issue unnecessarily, it’s not needed. There are many more important things which people are dealing with and fighting for,” she added.
The actor’s comments came on the sidelines of the trailer launch of her debut production. Interestingly, the video of the show has been pulled off from social media.
