Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan recently made headlines following the release of his daring poster of soon-to-release ‘PK‘. Many versions of the PK poster were also released by Twitterati.

The poster of the film which features Aamir Khan standing nude with just a radio to cover his modesty set off a chain reaction. While some hailed Aamir Khan for his unconventional approach to film promotion, others took to ridiculing the actor for resorting to cheap thrills.

However, the highlight was the announcement that as a part of the film promotions, a talking standee of the same poster was to be used at theatres.

Now reports are that on Monday, a similar talking standee of Aamir Khan had to be removed from the Gaiety-Galaxy theatres, after a group of women approached the police with a complaint.

Apparently, in the complaint, the group stated that the said standee was an “obscene image” and  should not be displayed in public. Post the complaint, the theatre owner Manoj Desai, who did not want to hurt the sentiments of patrons, decided on removing the standee after being approached by the police.

‘PK’ that also features Anushka Sharma, Boman Irani and Sanjay Dutt is directed by Rajkumar Hirani and is slated to release later this year on December 19, 2014.
