Bollywood actor Aamir Khan on Wednesday spoke out in support of actress Sunny Leone, who was at the receiving end of harsh questions about her professional choices in a TV interview.

During the promotional TV interview with CNN IBN anchor Bhupendra Chaubey, Sunny was asked that while she would like to work with Aamir Khan, but would Aamir Khan like to work with her.

Sunny faced it sportingly, and it is this spirit that has impressed Aamir.

“I think Sunny conducted herself with a lot of grace and dignity. I wish I could have said the same about the interviewer,” Aamir tweeted. (Read: Bollywood calls Sunny Leone a “rockstar” on her ‘brave’ interview)

Sunny acknowledged Aamir’s support with a re-tweet, which read: “I think my heart just dropped seeing this! Thank you so much for the support. It means the world and beyond to me.”

Sunny, who made inroads into Bollywood with “Jism 2”, is awaiting the release of her new film “Mastizaade”. It is to promote this sex comedy that she went in for the interview with Chaubey.

The interview was tagged as “disgusting and sexist” by a string of celebrities, who expressed support to Sunny.

Some of the questions asked were: There are lots of married women who look at Sunny Leone as a threat to their husbands, do you not care about all this?

A member of parliament, in his speeches, has held you responsible for corrupting Indian morality. How do you deal with that?

She was even asked: If Sunny Leone is becoming brand ambassador of New India, is that a dangerous trend to have?

The anchor didn’t stop there. He also asked Sunny if she is the reason behind the growing porn watchers in India.

“Since you have come to Indian cinema, the number of people watching porn has increased proportionately to the extent that we are now the world’s largest consumer of porn. Can you respond to that,” he asked.

However, Sunny answered the queries with wit and poise, thereby garnering applause from known names of the film fraternity.

                I don't why Aamir Khan is bent on destroying India. First He threatens to leave India and now He is glorifying a woman who sells her body to make a living. I think this is a sinister attempt at misleading the youth of India. It is simple to destroy a nation. Corrupt the youth and you have a society in which there is no respect for morality, chasy, religion and values. And the nation will slowly get weak and die. It will be a slow process and may take a few decades; let's say 5 decades. But 5 decades later no one will remember how a country that was so Moral got into so much trouble to begin with...

                  I see clearly through the intolerance debate now. As long as he provided good entertainment and did good work with Satyamev Jayate he was the darling of the nation. The moment he voices an opinion he becomes Public Enemy No. 1. As for Sunny Leone, I admire her for sticking it out in the film industry and learning Hindi.
