All India Bakchod, the country’s one of the most popular humour clubs, which has been missing in action since the #MeToo movement in India, has come to an end. This came seven months after core members Tanmay Bhatt and Gursimran Khamba were accused of sexual harassment last October.
The club took to their social media handle to announce the official end of their journey. Following the #MeToo movement, their partners and investors pulled out of many ongoing projects, thus putting them in a precarious position. Tanmay Bhatt was suspended and even though the suspension has been lifted, he has been removed from the position of CEO post the accusations. On the other hand, AIB had appointed an External Committee to look into the allegations made against Gursimran Khamba back in October but couldn’t come to a conclusion as Khamba had stepped away from the process. Further, Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakya will continue to manage the affairs of AIB for the time being, but will also pursue solo interests in the future.
Following this announcement, ex-member Gursimran Khamba took to his social media handle to explain why he withdrew from the enquiry against him and talked in length about ‘issues with procedures’. Lastly, the comic also announced his new venture Light@27 which he referred to as the silver lining.
