Apparently, many Twitter users dug up Aamir’s controversial statement “India’s growing intolerance” made it go viral. In 2015, he made a controversial statement: “Our country is very tolerant, but there are people who spread ill will.” His ex-wife, Kiran Rao, has also come under fire for saying she considered leaving the country for the safety of their children.
Assuring fans that he loves his country, he asked: “Please don’t boycott my film”.
During a recent press conference, Aamir was asked if this hatred and useless trolls bother him. To which the actor replied, “Yes, I feel sad. Also, I am sad that some of the people who say that, in their hearts, believe that I am someone who does not like India. In their hearts they believe, but it’s wrong. It’s kind of a shame that some people feel that way. It’s not. Please don’t boycott my movie. Please, watch my movie.
Speaking of Laal Singh Chaddha, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Naga Chaitanya and Mona Sing in pivotal roles. Directed by Advait Chandan, the film is set to hit theaters on August 11. The film is the official remake of the 1994 film “Forrest Grump” starring Tom Hanks.
When asked what really attracted him to the character of Tom Hank in the first place, the 57-year-old actor shared, “Tom Hank’s greatest strength is his innocence. That’s what I liked in him in the film, and that’s also what I tried to do in this film. It was also a big challenge for me to bring this expression and this state of mind, because I am someone who is in their late 50s now.
