The court had last week restrained Pune police from taking any coercive action against 14 persons, including Johar and actors Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, for allegedly using obscene and abusive language at AIB Roast show held in Mumbai last year.

The present FIR, registered by Mumbai police, is based on a complaint filed by the activist Santosh Daundkar.

The court has now clubbed both the matters and directed the state government to file its reply to two petitions which seek to quashing of FIRs.
