At various points, Khan has been an emcee for film ceremonies on pretty much every Indian entertainment channel out there.

In doing so, he has also been part of some pretty questionable attempts at humour.

Last month, Khan chatted with Film Companion's Anupama Chopra to promote Chef. However, it's one particular clip, in which Khan talks about what a huge scam these shows are, that has recently started going viral.
