Hotstar cancels On Air With AIB after the comedy sketch group gets involved in harassment row
The statement comes after the AIB said Tanmay Bhat and Gursimran Khamba are on temporary leave from everyday operations until further notice after various claims crops up.
Entertainment company Hotstar late on Monday released a statement saying that they will no longer be producing All India Bakchod’s On Air With AIB, after the recent sexual harassment row. The statement comes after the AIB said Tanmay Bhat and Gursimran Khamba are on temporary leave from everyday operations until further notice after various claims crops up.
Hotstar in their tweet said the production will cease with immediate effect because they are deeply concerned with the recent developments involving All India Bakchod. They went on to add that all of the sexual harassment allegations go against the values of their platform and they will not compromise on the safety or respect of women. Many have even asked Amazon Prime to follow suit and take their example to stop the show on the entertainment platform.
Interestingly, many users said the other videos are still available on Hotstar and nothing has been removed. There are many other users who have asked them to also remove the earlier episodes if they are going to be cancelling production of future episodes.
