Bollywood actor, Aamir Khan, whose comments over growing intolerance in India has got some people very angry and probably violent, has asked his wife Kiran and their child to leave Mumbai for a few days for the sake of their safety.
50-year-old Khan is under fire for revealing that his wife had suggested moving abroad following a spate of communal incidents in the country.
“Kiran and I have lived all our lives in India. For the first time, she said, should we move out of India? That’s a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make to me,” Khan had said.
The star continued, “She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day. That does indicate that there is a sense of growing disquiet.”
Noisy protests have been reported from outside his residence in Mumbai as well as Patna, where angry Hindu activists painted his posters with black ink before setting them on fire.
