An open letter addressed to actor Aamir Khan reprimands him for his stand on the AIB Roast, which the superstar denounced as "violent". The note to the actor, from a blogger named Vidyut, reminds Mr Khan that he defended his own films, PK and Delhi Belly, when they were accused of offensive content.
"You know first-hand what happens when angry people don't like content. Do you see the anger as your fault?" Mr Khan, 49, is asked.
In December 2014, when PK, starring Mr Khan was released, right-wing hardliner groups demanded it be banned because they said it mocked Hinduism. Some theatres that screened the film were vandalized. PK was a mega block-buster, earning more than Rs 640 crores worldwide.
"The issue is way bigger than a juvenile video or what you or I think about it, when you expand your opinion into a blanket responsibility on the creator for 'Who is responsible for hurt sentiments?' " the blog states.
Days ago, Aamir Khan said at an event that he had watched two clips from the Roast and didn't find it funny. "I felt it was a very violent event. Violence is not only physical, it can be verbal and emotional too. When you insult someone, you perpetuate violence," Mr Khan said. However, he was careful to clarify that there ought to be no witch-hunt against those involved in the Roast if no law had been broken. "If I don't like something that you have done, I should communicate it firmly strong words. I didn't like what you have done. I fold my hands and request you not to do this. But that's where my interference in how he should conduct himself ends," Mr Khan said.
