All India Bakchod (AIB) has always been one of the best comedy franchise, but soon after it issued a statement confirming famous comedian Gursimran Khamba’s exit, he announced his next venture describing all about it on his Instagram handle. Khamba was basically accused of sexual harassment by an unidentified woman, explaining in length why he withdrew from the inquiry against him and furthermore announced his new venture Light@27.
He wrote, “The past 7 months have been extremely challenging but eye-opening for both me and my family. An allegation was made by someone with whom I shared a deep personal relationship. Since the allegation surfaced, an informal committee was set up to look into it. The committee constituted was neither a court/ tribunal nor an internal complaints committee set up under the POSH Act. Nevertheless, because I had nothing to hide. I voluntarily chose to participate and began by extending all possible cooperation to this committee. However, this process which lasted 4 months was replete with procedural lapses and did not follow principles of natural justice. Despite my repeated requests to follow due process, these lapses continued. At this stage. I requested the committee to recuse itself and a fresh committee to be constituted. My request was denied and hence I was left with no choice but to withdraw from the enquiry. Till date, I maintain that I am happy to cooperate with any committee that is constituted fairly and follows principles of natural justice.”
He added, “The silver lining, however. is that through all of this. I got a chance to reflect and think about what I’m truly passionate about, who I want to work with and what I’d want the next chapter of my life to be. With that - I am thrilled to announce the launch of my new venture Light@27!” Light@27 is a comedy consultancy which will offer content and strategy solutions across live and digital media.
