Review | On Air with AIB
It seems that AIB team has been told to proceed with caution on this show, but these are still early days and maybe the commentary will get braver and sharper
You don’t make fun of the government in India. Ever. Whether it’s the Congress or Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or even Trinamool Congress. Our politicians don’t like anyone laughing at them. And our entertainment and news channels, in deference to them and to wanting to stay on air, try not to make programmes which will offend them. Which is why it was most impressive to hear that All India Bakchod (AIB)—which has already earned the ire of the government, Aamir Khan and the Church—was going to be front-lining a news comedy show. That too on primetime entertainment channels, Star Plus and Star World.
