Mumbai: Aamir Khan landed in yet another controversy after he commented on the “growing intolerance” in the country.
As an individual, as part of this country as a citizen, we read in the papers what is happening, we see it on the news and certainly, I have been alarmed. I can't deny. I have been alarmed by a number of incidents," he said while speaking here at the Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards.
However, a number of Twitter users have reacted strongly to his statement and have slammed him for trying to ruin the image of the country.
Here’s taking a look at some of the tweets:
