Aamir-Breaks-His-Silence..[tps_footer]Perfectionist Aamir Khan has had a tough time lately with his intolerance comments. The actor who always speaks his mind landed in a deep hassle when said that there is growing intolerance in India at a public platform. The highly talented star further added that his wife Kiran Rao had suggested him that they move out of the country. The following statement led to a huge uproar and took a political turn as well. From receiving flak on various platforms to him being termed anti-national to be allegedly replaced as the face of Incredible India, Aamir was subject to a lot of criticism.


Just when the things were appearing to be calm and steady, Aamir Khan has further clarified on his intolerance comment. Aamir clarified his stance at an event which marked the 10th anniversary of ‘Rang De Basanti’. The superstar stated, “Some people could understand me and some couldn’t. Those who are hurt, I can understand their feelings. I would have been hurt had I been in their place because they were told something that was not true. They were told Aamir wants to leave the country. Let me tell you that I never said this. I was born in India and I will die in India. I never thought about leaving the country. Neither Kiran nor will I think about it. In fact, when I stay away from the country for two weeks, I get homesick.”


Aamir Khan who is applauded for his choice of films also stated, “I never said Bharat desh is intolerant. Now, there are people who have negativity and positivity. Negative people spread negativity and decide to separate us. But India is a vast country. Every state has its own culture and diversity. I think ours is the only nation which is so diverse and yet so beautiful. Unity in diversity is our strength. And when someone tries to divide us, I get hurt.”

The Dangal actor Aamir who is one of the most intellectual stars further commented, “Our PM has said unity is our strength and that one shouldn’t spread poison. I love my country. To people who are spreading negativity, I, with folded hands, ask them not to do so.”


The straight forward actor also answered to all those who have questioned his patriotic values saying, “Why should I do Satyamev Jayate? It’s because I love my country. I feel happy that I am lending a hand in nation building. I belong to a freedom fighter’s family. My great-grand uncle was Maulana Abul Kalam Azad.”

Giving back to all those who criticized him, Aamir Khan concluded his view by opining, “Our country is a beautiful example of unity in diversity. Take my family for instance. My wife is Hindu. My two sisters are married to Hindus — Farhat is married to Rajeev while Nikhat to Santosh. My cousin Mansoor Khan has married a Catholic. I have three kids and they are half-Hindu and half-Muslim, both Kiran and I never bring our religions into the picture. I am an Indian first and always will be an Indian.”
