A year after All India Bakchod (AIB), stirred controversy for its meme on cricket legend, Sachin Tendulkar and singer Lata Mangeshkar, the comedy group, has landed in trouble once again.

This time, their meme targets Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. On Wednesday, AIB had tweeted a meme of PM Modi by using the Snapchat dog filter. Following this, Reetesh Maheshwari, a Twitter user, wrote to the Mumbai police handle, calling the meme an “obnoxious prank” and it required legal action.


A probe into the matter is carried on by Mumbai police’s cyber police station at the Bandra-Kurla Complex. An FIR has been registered against Bhat for the same.

Maheshwari also wrote on Mumbai police commissioner’s handle: “Pradhan Mantri ke liye is taike ka behuda Mazak par @AllIndiaBakchod and @thetanmay par sakt karwayi hona chahiye.”

The meme was later removed from Twitter by AIB.

Tanmay Bhat, AIB co-founder, defended the meme and took to Twitter and complained about what he called “the lack of rational reasoning.”

Deputy commissioner of police (cyber), Akbar Pathan, said they were verifying the matter and collecting more information.
In 2016 also, Mumbai police had received several complaints about the use of offensive language in an AIB show held in the city.
