Aamir Khan’s recently released flick, ‘PK’ has been the talk of the town much before it hit screens. However, post its release, the film has faced a bit of backlash from certain Hindutva groups Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
But, actor Salman Khan has come out in support of his good friend Aamir Khan’s film. The actor took to Twitter, praising the Rajkumar Hirani directorial venture and said in his usual andazz – isn’t it an amazing film.
‘PK’ which deals with the concept of Godmen, had an impressive opening at the Box Office, but the recent controversies have affected its collection in the last couple of days. Religious groups went on a rampage in places like Ahmedabad and Bhopal, smashing theatres that were screening the film and demanded a ban on ‘PK’.
In Agra, protesters accused Aamir Khan of double standards and suggested the actor move to Pakistan.
Filmmaker Raju Hirani expressed his sadness and concern about the protests against ‘PK’. The director issued a statement on behalf of the ‘PK’ team, clarifying that they respect all religions and faiths.
“I appeal to the groups protesting against our film to see the film in totality and not just isolated scenes. Our intention is not to hurt anyone, or to discriminate against any religion. I would once again like to assure them that I have the highest regard towards all religions, and that we respect all religions and faiths,” said Raju Hirani in his statement.
Also starring Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjay Dutt, ‘PK’ released on December 19.
