Aamir Khan rubbed off some people pretty bad after he reacted on the AIB Roast issue. Aamir called the show ‘violent’ and ‘shameful’, to which people argued that Aamir was being hypocrite as he himself had produced an adult film, Delhi Belly.
But in a recent interview with a daily, Aamir explained his reaction on the matter. Aamir revealed that his reaction was more emotional than moralistic, as the roast targeted a beautiful, young girl he loves dearly. “I’m aware that if you sign up for the Roast, you sign up to insult each other.
But, in this case, even those who hadn’t sign up, were being targeted, like Farida Jalal, Reema Lagoo and a beautiful, young girl I love dearly. The young girl whom I’ve known since she was a kid, was the butt of racist and sexist jokes. She did not even know that a live audience was watching this and couldn’t protect herself. That is unfair! This is what I meant when I described the show as “violent”. Films which depict violence are fictional but this young girl is real. So my reaction was more emotional than moralistic,” Aamir Khan said.
The actor went further on and commented over all the argument relating his Delhi Belly film. The actor said he has no moral issues with the use of expletives in content that is solely meant for adults. “As I said, I have no moral issues with the use of expletives in content meant for adults. When we made Delhi Belly we were making a film which was meant for an adult certification. In P.K. I play an alien and they don’t wear clothes on his planet. For me, there’s no vulgarity in nudity. That is how we are born into this world,” Aamir concluded.
