The News Minute | February 13, 2015 | 04:40 pm IST Following a Mumbai court's order, an FIR has reportedly been filed against 14 people who were involved in the All India Bakchod (AIB) Roast, held in Mumbai on December 20, the videos of which were released on YouTube in January.  Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor, Alia Bhat, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh are among the ones whose names have been mentioned in the FIR.  Film maker Mahesh Bhatt however expressed his concerns regarding the FIR, especially about how the FIR had named only certain people and left out others. “Alia was a participant and also subjected to the humour. The FIR names Deepika Padukone and Alia among the participants. Why not the other 3,998 attendees of the show? More importantly, if it names celebrities in the audience, why not Sonakshi Sinha,”, The Indian Express quotes Bhatt as saying in an apparent reference to the latter's father, Shatrughan Sinha, a BJP MP.  “Clearly, certain forces are orchestrating this series of events. The answer is in my question,” he added.  Bhatt on Friday also tweeted, There r some things that are in the INTEREST of the nation and some which interest the nation. AIB manufactured drama is the latter. — Mahesh Bhatt (@MaheshNBhatt) February 13, 2015 However, the Dabangg actor soon shot off a series of tweets to Bhatt in response to his allegations.

(4/4) — Sonakshi Sinha (@sonakshisinha) February 13, 2015 Bhatt also tweeted by saying, @sonakshisinha TRUE! I could not agree with you more. Thank you for your SANE response.
