Backing Ram Madhav’s remark that Bollywood actor Aamir Khan should preach to his wife about India’s prestige, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday went one step ahead and alleged that the ‘PK’ star had collaborated with Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) to promote his movie.
“I don’t give importance to the statements made by Aamir Khan. I know this fact that he had collaborated with the Pakistan’s ISI to promote his movie ‘PK’. He has still not come out with a clarification,” Swamy told ANI.
“Being the brand ambassador of Incredible India campaign him saying that his wife feels insecure in the country, was not right. If she feels insecure, she should leave,” he added.
Madhav had earlier courted controversy after he said that Aamir should not only preach to an auto-rickshaw driver about India’s prestige but also to his wife.
“It will not work that you preach to an auto wallah how the country’s prestige has to be saved but not tell the same to your own wife,” Madhav had said at Delhi’s SGBT Khalsa College.
In November, Aamir had expressed alarm and despondency over the rise in cases displaying intolerance in the last six to eight months.
He had said that a sense of ‘insecurity’ and ‘fear’ had seeped deep within society.
“When I go home and talk to Kiran (Aamir’s wife), for the first time she says, ‘Should we move out of India?'” Khan said.
