Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, ‘PK’ revolves around the concept of blind belief and Godmen. The movie has got its share of criticism from few religious groups who demanded its ban. The film had an impressive opening, but the recent controversies had affected its collection in the last couple of days. Religious groups went on a rampage in places like Ahmedabad and Bhopal, smashing theatres that were screening the film and demanded a ban on ‘PK’.
In Agra, protesters accused Aamir Khan of double standards and suggested the actor move to Pakistan. However, looks like the film has picked up.
