SAD! Deepika Padukone Hurt By The Response She Received On 'Ranbir Kapoor's Marriage' Comment
Aamir Khan had said at an event about the increasing intolerance in India, ''Kiran and I have lived all our lives in India. For the first time, she said, should we move out of India? That's a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make to me. She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers everyday. That does indicate that there is a sense of growing disquiet.''
The PK actor received many negative comments from political parties and film industry colleagues after expressing his views. Later, Aamir released a statement to clarify that he loves India and will not leave it at any cost.
He said, ''First let me state categorically that neither I, nor my wife Kiran, have any intention of leaving the country. We never did, and nor would we like to in the future. We never did, and nor would we like to in the future. Anyone implying the opposite has either not seen my interview or is deliberately trying to distort what I have said.''
"To all the people shouting obscenities at me for speaking my heart out, it saddens me to say you are only proving my point," he added.

Office of RG@OfficeOfRG, ''Instead of branding all those who question the Govt & Modiji- as unpatriotic, anti national or 'motivated'. The Govt would do better to reach out to people to understand what's disturbing them. That's the way to solve problems in India- not by bullying, threatening & abusing!''
