Aamir Khan shouldn't hurt religious sentiments: MP Home Minister

Update : 13 Oct 2022, 15:29

Aamir Khan and Kiara Advani featured in a commercial that promotes banking services. They played the role of newlyweds, attempting to break traditions and stereotypes as a groom plans to live with the bride’s parents.

The advertisement shows Mr Khan and Ms Advani as newly-weds travelling back from their wedding and discussing that both of them did not cry during 'bidaai'.

The ad further shows the couple reaching the bride's house and the groom taking the first step into the house, as against the traditional practice for brides.  The ad was created for AU Bank with a tagline ‘Badlaav humse hai’ (change should come from us).

After netizens raised objection to the commercial, Madhya Pradesh Minister Narottam Mishra gave his opinion regarding the ad and has advised that Aamir and the makers should keep in mind the sentiments of everyone before doing such a commercial.

Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Wednesday said Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan should stay away from advertisements and acts which hurt religious sentiments.

"I have seen actor Aamir Khan's advertisement for a private bank after receiving a complaint. I request him to do such advertisements by keeping the Indian traditions and customs in mind. I do not consider it appropriate. Such things about Indian tradition, customs and deities keep coming, especially about Aamir Khan. The sentiments of a particular religion are hurt by such acts. I believe he is not allowed to hurt anyone's sentiments," shared Minister Mishra.
