Rejoice everyone! It is now official! Comedy Central will soon be hosting the Roast of Justin Bieber. Prepare to hear unified groans from all the “Beliebers” as their idol is ripped to shreds.
Now if you don’t know what a celebrity roast is, then all you need to know is that it is a lot like an actual pot roast. The celeb is skewered on stage and slowly roasted with insults, till he/she is burned to crisp humiliation. Some do it for charity, while others are just downright shameless. This got us thinking – who are the most eligible celebs in India who need a good ol’ roasting? Well, suffice it to say, this list won’t disappoint:
1. Anu Malik
If he isn’t busy stealing tunes from all around the world, he can be seen judging some generic talent hunt show. This is a surprise, considering how talent-less Anu Malik really is. From his inane childish rhymes that he busts on the spot to his giant ego, this guy deserves to be roasted. He deserves to be roasted good! Ever so often, he also manages to make us cringe by singing a song. Does he bother listening to the song afterwards, is what we wonder.
He has the honor of single-handedly lowering the IQ of every other youngster these days. This guy raps about getting sloshed and having naughty time with the ladies, for crying out loud! Misogyny max! Lead the way to the youth’s doom, why don’t you Honey? Geez, can’t even use his name in a sentence without sounding corny. Mr. Yo Yo Singh is in need of some serious roasting, you guys!
3. Rakhi Sawant
Our only female entrant on this list is no stranger to media attention. She is either in the thick of it all, or trying to be in the thick of it all to stay relevant. From mis-pronouncing Jesus` name on Big Boss to marrying a guy on a reality show, Rakhi Sawant has forever etched her name in our memory. And that’s not the kind of memory we deserve. Come to think of it, Rakhi Ka Roast has a nice ring to it.
4. Sajid Khan
His roast should be open to all the people who paid money to watch Humshakals. Who on earth thinks of turning Ram Kapoor into a drag queen? And who decides to make a sequel to Housefull? Who insults esteemed directors as they step on stage to receive their awards? Sajid Khan, of course! This director’s roast is long overdue. In fact the cast of Humshakals should get first dibs.
5. Kamaal Rashid Khan
Words can’t define KRK’s greatness. His twitter account and his single disastrous movie are proof enough. He also is a known giver of zero you-know-whats. So arguing with him is basically a lot like wrestling with a pig. The pig likes it, but you are now covered in pig excrement! Try getting that image out of your head.
With comedians adopting the concept of a Roast in India, we have seen celebs such as Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Suhel Seth stepping on the podium to be ridiculed beyond recognition. Now to wait and watch till someone from this list gets what’s coming to them.
