How & What to Roast - Freedom of Speech

How to do a knockout roast in India. I know, its very difficult to do a roast here. Impossible, especially after the Arjun, Ranveer, Karan jokers knock out. But, that's where the true spirit of the knockout is. Enough roasting celebrities and becoming more popular. The new roasts and knockouts should be focusing the exploiting corporate pigs who owes billions in debts and roaming around freely. Lets roast them. Business men who's got truckloads of currencies in foreign banks, lets knock them out. Politicians who are their puppets, but playing with their power on innocent people, delaying developments, lets roast them too, on stage and online in front of public. There is so much to do, in front of public. If these celebrities can show their freedom of speech with the same face and courage and enthusiasm, in stripping down these people masks, identifying them tot the public in broad day light, then we can see really big change happening.
