The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) under Customs and Central Excise Department probes economic offences. Aamir Khan starrer ‘PK’ is raking in the moolah at the box office despite making headlines over its content. Several religious groups have protested against the screening of the film and have objected certain content in it. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, ‘PK’ was released on December 19.
The film made headlines ever since its first poster was released. The poster in question had Aamir in nude with a transistor covering its modesty.
