All India Bakchod (AIB) has issued a statement that it will not be coming up with any new sketches because of revenue coming to a halt and operational costs increasing, media reports said.

AIB has also removed comics Tanmay Bhat as its CEO and member Gursimran Khamba over allegations of sexual harassment.

AIB released a statement on social media, saying: “With no incoming revenue and operational costs piling up, we had to make some hard and unfortunately permanent decisions. We had to let our office space and entire team go overnight. Production, creative, administration, all of it. The AIB YouTube channel is, for all intents and purposes, dead for the foreseeable future—there will be no new sketches anytime soon."

“We recognise that the culture at work may not have been perfect and simply put, we need to be better. To that end, we maintain that Tanmay Bhat's lapse of judgment regarding Utsav Chakraborty was egregious. As a result, even though Tanmay Bhat's suspension has been lifted, he will no longer hold a position of CEO," the statement said.

Regarding Khamba, the statement further said, "The External Committee was unable to conclude the investigation on account of his withdrawal. Given these circumstances, Gursimran Khamba will no longer be involved in operations at AIB, and will be working independent of us."
