Pravin – Hi, Good evening Shyam.
Shyam – Good evening. How are you?
Pravin – Thanks, I am good, what about you? Where were you these days?
Shyam – Yes, I was busy as I had to visit Singapore for a business meeting.
Pravin – Oh! That’s the reason I suppose, you weren’t available on the phone.
Shyam – Exactly.
Pravin – Hey Shyam, did you watch that recent online comedy show that made a lot of roar on the social media?
Shyam – Which one?
Pravin – AIB, which was hosted by Karan Johar. It also featured big actors, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
Shyam – No, I haven’t watched it, but heard many things related to it. Yesterday, even some news about it was flashing on news channels. Did you watch?
Pravin – Yes, I did watch and believe me it was something unusual that I never expected from Karan Johar.
Shyam – Why? What was there in the video?
Pravin – It was a comedy act put together by the AIB team, but it had excessive use of offensive language. Even Karan Johar was seen using vulgar and offensive language to make people laugh.
Shyam – That is strange.
Pravin – Yes. Many other Bollywood actors have reacted on it. Even social activists have filed a case against him. And the controversy is still hot in the media. The video has been removed from YouTube otherwise I would have suggested you to watch it. Anyway, I am in a hurry, will meet you soon.
Shyam – Ok. Bye. Take care.
Pravin – You too.
