Yikes! It seems Aamir Khan’s comments regarding the All India Bakchod (AIB) Knockout Roast was not taken well. Khan had said, “I felt it was a very violent event. Violence is not only physical, it can be verbal and emotional too. When you insult someone, you perpetuate violence”. Khan further clarified his stand on the subject. He said, “If I don’t like something that you have done, I should communicate it firmly strong words. I didn’t like what you have done. I fold my hands and request you not to do this. But that’s where my interference in how he should conduct himself ends”.
A blogger by the name of Vidyut has written an open letter where he slams Khan for the comments he made and uses Khan’s own defense of his films Delhi Belly and PK as a reminder as Khan had defended the films when they were accused of being offensive. The blogger asks, “You know first-hand what happens when angry people don’t like content. Do you see the anger as your fault?”.
The open letter was then tweeted by film director, Tarun Mansukhani who urged Khan to be a “responsible celebrity”. Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap was a guest at the Roast also weighed in on this by posting a video of Khan defending Delhi Belly on his Facebook page. The video shows Khan saying, “I have already informed my audiences that it is an adult film. Please do not go with your kids and those who have a problem with this kind of language shouldn’t come either. I try my best to inform the audiences before-hand. If the audience is adult, they can decide themselves.”.
What do you think of the open letter? Let us know in the comment section below.
