Bollywood’s Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan expressed his disappointment at the Supreme Court verdict on homosexuality being illegal.

Aamir posted on his Twitter account,“I am most disappointed with this judgement. It feels very intolerant and violative of basic human rights. Its a shame.”

Aamir,who is currently busy promoting his upcoming film ‘Dhoom 3’ ,took time out to go through what has been happening in other industries other than Bollywood.

In a blow to gay rights activists,the Supreme Court today upheld the constitutional validity of the penal provision making gay sex an offence punishable with upto life imprisonment.

A bench of justices G S Singhvi and S J Mukhopadhaya set aside the Delhi High Court’s verdict which had in 2009 decriminalised gay sex among consenting adults in private.
