Derogatory word for policeman in ‘PK’ lands Aamir Khan in trouble

Mumbai: Rajkumar Hirani’s PK starring Aamir Khan had made headlines for many reasons. The film which went on to become one of the biggest blockbusters of Hindi cinema, had offended many religious groups over its content.

Even the first poster of the film had stirred controversy as it showed a nude Aamir Khan covering his essentials with a transistor. And now, almost after eight months of its release, the film has landed the actor in trouble once again.

A documentary filmmaker based in the capital has filed a complaint with the Delhi police against the Bollywood superstar for using the derogatory word ‘thulla’ against a cop in the film.

"There is no debate on whether the said word is derogatory or not. My issue is that if the sentiments of police officials were hurt after hearing Arvind Kejriwal using the word then why not in the case of Aamir Khan. In the film PK, the word has been used and the movie' was released much before Mr Kejriwal gave that interview to a news channel," DNA quoted Ullas, the complainant as saying.
