“We (celebrities) are scared to say anything. Whatever we say it’s taken in another direction,” he said. The move has had an impact on the films that released in the past two weeks. When asked if he is worried since his film Dangal will release in December, Aamir said, “I am not aware of it. I can’t comment.”
Aamir is in the village to attend Geeta Phogat’s wedding. The actor is portraying the role of Geeta’s wrestler father Mahavir Singh Phogat. Geeta is a gold winning wrestling champion.
