Intolerant India – A big discussion begins
Earlier this month, Shahrukh Khan spoke about intolerance in India and there was an outrage. It was in lieu to a movement which started with writers returning their State awards which quickly caught up with the scientists, historians and filmmakers community.
And now the talk of the town is Aamir Khan saying –
“(Wife) Kiran and I have lived all our lives in India. For the first time, she said, should we move out of India? That’s a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make to me,”
“She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers everyday. That does indicate that there is a sense of growing disquiet.”
There are speculations being made in public that Aamir Khan is building up his publicity for his upcoming big budget movie ‘Dangal’. There is still a year for this movie release though! The public is divided into supporters and opposers and the entire social media is talking about it. Whatever may be Amir’s reasons for such comments, it definitely has created a buzz all over the world.
