The AIB Roast may have ended but controversies continue. The latest one sees veteran Bollywood director Mahesh Bhatt square off with actress Sonakshi Sinha. After an FIR was filed against 14 members present at the roast, including Mahesh's daughter Alia Bhatt, we were left wondering why Sonakshi was spared.
Mahesh Bhatt came to his daughter's defence and issued a public statement saying that the real reason for letting Sonakshi off the hook is because she's the daughter of BJP MP Shatrughan Sinha.
This is how Ms. Sinha reacted:

And as far as my memeory serves me, nobody EVER went to jail for laughing. (4/4)— Sonakshi Sinha (@sonakshisinha) February 13, 2015
To which Mr. Bhatt had a rather sarcastic reply:
@sonakshisinha TRUE! I could not agree with you more. Thank you for your SANE response. Amazed by your maturity at this tender age. Love— Mahesh Bhatt (@MaheshNBhatt) February 13, 2015
