Bollywood star Aamir Khan has chosen to stay mum on the issue of Pakistani films not being screened at the ongoing MAMI festival here and the threats over the release of Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
During the opening ceremony of the 18th Jio MAMI festival here, Aamir was asked to give his opinion on the opposition to screening of a Pakistani film and the ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ controversy, the actor said, “MAMI se poocho”, before walking off.
Following the Uri terror attack, the MNS has threatened not to allow screening of Johar’s film which features Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. Aamir Khan had earlier got involved in a controversy over his remarks on intolerance.
Aamir was present at the MAMI festival with Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra, who play Geeta Phogat and Babita Kumari in his forthcoming film Dangal. Since the time the film’s trailer was launched, there have been reports of similarity between ‘Dangal’ and ‘Sultan’.
When asked about it, Aamir said, “No, not necessary, when you see the film you will realise.”
