Aamir Khan collaborated with ISI to promote 'PK': Subramanian Swamy
New Delhi: BJP leader Subramian Swamy today alleged that actor Aamir Khan had collaborated with Pakistani intelligence agency ISI to promote his film PK in 2014.
"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.
Swamy, known for not mincing his words, had earlier questioned funding of PK during its release. Swamy has alleged that PK's Dubai leg of promotion has been funded by a company called ARY, which allegedly has terror links. To bolster his claim, Swamy has even retweeted a picture where ARY Digital features prominently in the backdrop where the stars are sitting.
He had earlier said that PK hurt the religious sentiments of people across the communities. He claims that even Sikhs are hurt by the movie as it has disparaged a Sikh as a beggar.
Aamir has been facing the flak from a section of leaders for making 'intolerant India' remark.
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.
