Aamir Khan has come out in support of PM Narendra Modi’s decision to abolish 500 and 1000 rupee notes in India. Lauding the initiative that has been instituted to curb black money, Aamir made it clear that one needs to do things that the country requires it’s countrymen to do.

Speaking at the song launch of Dangal, Aamir said, “I think these issues which are concerning our country are more important. We shouldn’t see the short term impact of it. The things that we need to do for the country, we should do it. Even if it (demonetisation) causes loss to my film, I will see it as a small thing.”

More from the world of Entertainment:


Aamir also dismissed the poor turn-out to watch Rock On 2 as a one-off incident and refused to tag it as the aftereffects of demonetisation.

When asked if he had faced any problems after 500 and 1000 rupee notes were declared illegal tender, Aamir quipped, “I don’t have money at all. It didn’t make any difference to me.”

Bollywood meanwhile has come out in strong support of Modi’s initiative. Post the announcement, many took to Twitter to congratulate Modi for his bold move. From Amitabh Bachchan to Rajinikanth, celebs tweeted their good wishes. Even Modi’s staunchest critic Anurag Kashyap lauded the PM. The lone one who criticised Modi was Arshad Warsi who vented his frustration on Twitter yesterday.

Dangal director Nitesh Tiwari too exhorted one and all to look at the larger picture rather than the short term inconveniences.

      IMF praised it.lt;br/gt;Ravish Kumar praised it. lt;br/gt;But when Aamir Khan does, Everybody saying its about Dangal release. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;You can differ with their ideology but not everything they do is bad. Human Organ trafficking is also affected badly by this. Elections to Real Estate, every corrupt system suffered so you gotta laud it. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Great gestures by Aamir Khan. Just praising this doesn't make you a bhakt.
