AIB (All India Bakchod), a comedy collective, took the nation's attention with their witty take over several socio-political issues. The members, Tanmay Bhatt, Gursimran Khamba, Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakya, were gaining huge success until the #metoo movement hit the country. Gursimran Khamba was accused of sexual harassment by a former partner.
Tanmay Bhatt was also accused of not taking any action against sexual harassment allegations against a fellow comedian. Tanmay also posted an apology for the same. “I should’ve ended ties then, and I didn’t, and it is my fault. I’m truly sorry. I should’ve acted stronger,” he had said. Investigations were underway for Khamba in the case. But he has recently, withdrawn from the proceedings of the investigation.
Citing issues with the procedures of the External Committee appointed for undertaking a fair investigation against the sexual harassment allegations against him, Khamba has stepped away from the investigation. In an official statement by ABI posted on social media, they confirmed that Gursimran Khamba has been sacked while Tanmay Bhatt has been demoted as CEO of the company.
“We’d also like to state that we at AIB have had an IC and anti-harassment system in place from the start. However, we recognize that the culture at work may not have been perfect and simply put, we need to be better. To that end, we maintain that Tanmay Bhat’s lapse of judgment regarding Utsav Chakraborty was egregious. As a result, even though Tanmay Bhat’s suspension has been lifted, he will no longer hold the position of CEO,” the statement said.
After the #metoo allegations against Khamba and another comedian Utsav Chakraborty, sponsors began cutting ties with AIB. Hence, affecting the income of the organization drastically. AIB had ceased its video production on YouTube in October 2018. The finances of the company drained so much that they had to give up their Mumbai office and the employees overnight. issue gets resolved soon and the sexual predator, if proven guilty, is sentenced fairly by the law.
