Mumbai: Union Minister of State for Culture & Tourism Dr. Mahesh Sharma on Wednesday stated that Aamir Khan ceases to be the face of the Incredible India Campaign because his contract has expired. A day after the announcement, the Bollywood superstar has expressed his take on issue.
“I respect the decision of the government to discontinue with my services.
It is prerogative of government to decide whether they need brand ambassador for any campaign, and if so, who that ambassador should be.
Whether I am brand ambassador or not, India will remain Incredible, and that's the way it should be” ANI quoted Aamir as saying.
It was earlier being speculated that Aamir was ousted from the campaign because of his remarks on the alleged growing intolerance in the country.
