While All India Bakchod  issued a statement saying that they had not received any threats from political parties or had not been asked to take down the Roast video, Aditi Mittal, who was also a part of the AIB Knockout has been facing the irk of a political group.

Reportedly, a show featuring the comedian that was suppose to be held at Cheval, a bar and restaurant in Mumbai, got cancelled after a political party held a protest against her outside the venue.

DNA quoted a member of the management saying that the show was cancelled because of Aditi Mittal's participation in the AIB Roast.

Cheval wrote on their Facebook wall, "We're sad to announce that tonight's edition of Wednesday Wisecrackers with Aditi Mittal is cancelled. You can still drop by for a fun night with drinks though. We'll share updates on next week's edition shortly."

Earlier today, in an 720-word open letter posted on Twitter, the AIB team — Gursimran Khamba, Tanmay Bhat, Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakya — via its @AllIndiaBakchod handle, said: "Dear everyone, Let's just all take a deep breath. They're just jokes. Unfunny, crass or whatever you want to call them, they're still just jokes."

Explaining what they do, they wrote: "People who've been following our work will know that we've always tried to experiment with content, be it on Youtube or a live comedy show, with the sole intent of making people laugh and/or think."

"AIB Knockout was another such attempt to try something new and bring the roast format to a country where celebrities aren't often known to laugh at themselves."
