Aamir Khan defends nude ‘PK’ poster
<PK>Perfectionist Aamir Khan’s nude PK poster has created furor all over and a case was also filed against him and the makers of the film for promoting nudity and vulgarity and following which the poster of PK was removed from theatres. After maintaining a dignified silence over the matter, for the first time Aamir Khan broke his silence and spoke in favour of the poster.
Calling it "key art", the actor says it depicts the story of the film. Talking about it, Aamir said, "When you (audience) will watch the film then only you will be able to understand the idea behind (the poster). But I would just like to say that the kind of filmmaker, the kind of writer Rajkumar is, he always tries to present the things, his thinking, in a unique way and that's why I am his huge fan."
Citing the example of the poster of one of his most successful movie, ‘Taare
Zameen Par’, he said, "In the poster of Taare Zameen Par, the child
(actor Darsheel Safary) is sitting in the front on the school bench and I am
sitting behind him. So it is a kind of key art, the image that tells you much
about the story and so does the poster of PK."
"This is not for publicity, not for us atleast. Infact, this poster embibes all the elements of the film."
Aamir is optimistic that once the film gets released, all the doubts will be cleared and those who are raising objection would get the answer, "We are getting a mixed response from the people. But I feel that when they will watch the film, their doubts will get cleared," the 49-year-old said.
Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, PK features actor Sanjay Dutt, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput apart from Aamir.
