BJP leader hints at targeting Aamir Khan's 'Dangal' over 'intolerant India' remark

Bhopal: In a veiled attack on Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, BJP's fiery leader Kailash Vijayvargiya said that it is annoying when somebody talks about intolerance in this country.

Addressing a gathering in Indore on the occasion of Makar Sakranti, Vijayvargiya said that one has already been fixed and it is time to fix the other one now.

Sab dhyan rakhna Dangal mein Mangal karna hai,” he said.

Though he refrained from taking any name, his remarks were seemingly directed at Aamir's upcoming movie 'Dangal'.

'Dangal' is based on a biopic on wrestling mentor Mahavir Singh Phogat starring Aamir in the lead.

During the release of Shah Rukh Khan's 'Dilwale', movie posters were torn and protests were carried out at several places.

In November, Aamir had expressed alarm and despondency over the rise in cases displaying intolerance in the last six to eight months.He had said that a sense of `insecurity` and `fear` had seeped deep within society.

"When I go home and talk to Kiran (Aamir`s wife), for the first time she says, `Should we move out of India?`" Khan said.
