Hardline Hindu nationalist party Shiv Sena has offered Rs100,000 for anyone who ‘slaps’ Bollywood actor Aamir Khan for his comments on rising intolerance in India.
Based on reports in the Indian media, Shiv Sena activists assembled outside the resort where Khan is staying on Wednesday, hurling abuses from the star and calling for him to leave the state if he’s “so irritated within the scenario here”.
His pictures also combusted, interrupting traffic in town.
That is very important because no one living in our state should dare to express anything against India,” said local Shiv Sena leader Rajeev Tandon, who had been directing the demonstration.
“Anyone from the resort staff to the team can smack him and take the benefit,” he was quoted as saying.
The favorite performer has located himself in the center of a controversy following an interview earlier this week where he said his wife Kiran had proposed leaving on India in view of growing intolerance in the united states.
The performer of PK – Aamir Khan’s hit film of 2014 – additionally showed support for creative individuals and the musicians who’d returned their awards in protest on the growing climate of intolerance in India.
“If he does not adore the state any more, then he can go to Pakistan,” Kadam said.
Famous Indian stars like Rishi Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Anupam Kher and Ram Gopal Varma have slammed Aamir Khan in the media for calling India intolerant as well as for his remarks.
Up to now, support has been received by Aamir only from Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman who says he confronted the same scenario months past.
