Following Aamir Khan’s statement about leaving India due to growing intolerance, veteran actor Anupam Kher has criticised the actor for his words, reminding him that it was India which gave him recognition and fame, reported Hindustan Times.
Kher tweeted to Khan after the actor and his wife Kiran Rao expressed concerns about intolerance in India and suggested that they should leave the country.
Aamir is not the first actor who has spoken up about intolerance in the country. Superstar Shahrukh Khan had also raised his voice on the matter. Indian actors Sonam Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra also supported Pakistani actors Mahira Khan and Fawad Khan when Shiv Sena called for a ban on them.
Anupam Kher, who starred with Aamir Khan in Dil Hai K Manta Nahi, is also the husband of actor Kiron Kher who is a member of the current ruling party, Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP).
The 2018 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) annual conference is scheduled for April 8 to 11 in Boao, Hainan Province. The forum will be themed "An Open and Innovative Asia for a World of Greater Prosperity."
