In the clip, Aashish roasted the former managing director of BharatPe, who was one of the most outspoken judges on Shark Tank India, by saying, "TV pe log talent dikhane jaat hai, ye aukat dikha ke aa gaya.

Sab show pe laga diya tha (The episode has been removed my friends. I don't have money to fight a legal battle as I used up all of it to create this show)."

Aashish went to write, “The response of previous episodes led us to believe our audiences were ready for roast humour. However, it seems that some, especially those in power, are not quite there yet.

A person also tweeted, "This guy, who shows 'aukat' to everyone, running a loss making enterprise and making it a home affair, the way his wife (Madhuri Jain Grover) used to fight on social media, shows what teachings they are giving to the new generation.
