If all goes well, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who has resigned from the Copyright Act amendment committee, is likely to withdraw his resignation letter. HRD minister Kapil Sibal said that Aamir is reconsidering coming back to the panel.
Veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar along with Vishal Bhardwaj met the minister and handed a letter to him. He said that he never doubted Aamir's intentions and that his objective is the same as that of the songwriters'.
Aamir Khan had earlier submitted his resignation letter to Kapil Sibal over disagreement with Javed Akhtar. "I feel I have a lot to contribute to the ongoing debate but I cannot make any meaningful contribution in this atmosphere. Aggression of this type leaves me feeling very disillusioned and sad and I am unable to function. Therefore I request you to accept my resignation from this committee and please appoint another person in my place. I believe that amendments to the Copyright Act are long overdue," he wrote.
