We are all deeply affected by whatever our B-town celebrities say. Be it intolerance or censorship, the year 2015 saw a lot of controversies finding their way into the limelight..!!
Be it Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan’s remarks on intolerance or Salman Khan’s open disapproval of terrorist Yakub Memon’s death sentence, controversies walked hand in hand with Bollywood stars in the year gone by.
6. Intolerance Debate
When Aamir said he was alarmed by the recent incidents of violence in the country and his wife Kiran Rao even suggested that they should leave the country, the superstar came under fire from the members of the ruling party, his own colleagues some celebrities and fans.
All social networking sites had videos and spoofs about his statement. He even released a statement in his defence stating that his words were misunderstood but he stands by everything that he had said. Surprising!
Adding fuel to the fire was Shahrukh who evoked similar reactions when on his 50th birthday, he said there was extreme intolerance in the country. His comments soon became a political debate and finally he got tagged as a Pakistani agent and was compared to criminals like Hafiz Saeed by some. Shahrukh, later, claimed he never said India was intolerant and his words were misconstrued.
