In September, Mumbai-based Raza Academy had objected to the film in question and issued a fatwa against Rahman and Majidi, calling the movie anti-Islam.

Subsequently, in a long statement, posted on his Facebook page, Rahman quoted verses from the Quran to explain his point of view and the decision behind boarding Majidi's movie, which is a planned trilogy on the life of Prophet Muhammad.

Here’s what Aamir said that triggered controversy:

While speaking at an event, you said, “I feel there is a sense of insecurity, there is a sense of fear... I think in the last 6 months...8 months, there has been a growing sense of despondency...Kiran and I have lived all our lives here...for the first time Kiran says we will move out of India...it is a very disastrous and a big statement for Kiran to make to me....She fears for her child...she fears what the atmosphere around us will be...she feels scared to open the newspapers everyday. So that does indicate that there is sense of growing disquiet, there is a sense of growing despondency...So that sense does exist in me to be quite honest.”
