When it comes to the Bollywood movie industry, the name Khan holds a lot of weight, so it is always nice to get their views and opinions on certain matters within the industry. Aamir Khan has been giving his views on the banning of certain material in Bollywood and it seems that Aamir is dead against it.
Khan told PTI, "I am totally against banning any kind of material. When the I&B minister spoke to us, he also clarified that actually the ministry has no such list of cuss words. It's a certification board and not the censor board. It was nice to hear that."
Aamir Khan went on to focus on one film in particular, the 2013 film Vishwaroopan, which was banned following a lot of controversy surrounding it. Aamir directly addressed the star of the movie, Kamal Haasan, apologising to him for what happened.
Khan added, "I really feel ashamed that at that time I was lost in my work but as an industry that was the time we had to come together. I apologise to you (Kamal Hassan) publicly that I wasn't there at that time. I feel bad that we weren't there with you."
He concluded, "Banning a film is not right. Once the film has received the certification, it is the responsibility of the state to make sure that people can watch the film without any fear. Movie bans are done by taking law into your own hands, but this is really sad and unfortunate."
It will be interesting to see if Aamir Khan's words have any impact on the future of the Bollywood movie industry.
