@ Gubbara, I agree with U on most things, just leave the "Aamir is muslim" angle. Raju Hirani is the centre of whole PK movie and its content and intent.
Aamir is probably the most patriotic Khan out there in BW. He comes from Maulana Aazad's family. Watch his Sarfarosh where he plays Hindu cop who had a brain storming dialogs @ muslims and Pakistanis and Hindus and India. Or Earth.. in which he plays muslim character who turns out to be a killer just sake of his religion.
Who in BW wud dare to put up a show like SMJ? Yes, some ppl wud say it shows India in bad lights but the issues r real and then focus in the end on solutions... at least awareness. Aamir doesn't need to prove how patriotic he is.
It's not Aamir, its Raju Hirani and VVC who r more responsible. I think they r Hindus.. if they really dont know that.
There have been many controversial movies in past. eg.. Jodha Akbar- in which Rajput raja-maharajs surrender to Akbar's threat like spineless cowards.. I was on another forum those days.. the Rajput community took BIG offense to that.. and I sided with the members who were against this "twisting the history" by Ashu G. Also, Jodhabai's real name to how she was forced to get married.. aslo had big debates. Nobody asked HR or Aish to answer. Its abt content and even tho I m HR fan, I got the point of Rajput community. The community that wud prefer to die in battlefield than surrender.
The same HR also played misguided muslim youth who turns to terrorism in Fiza and MK. Is it coz he'z Hindu?
I had problems with Ram-leela "title" and "content" that was insulting. SLB is responsible for that, not the actors r Hindu, muslim or Sikh.
This topic has gone into all kinds of directions. Plz, stick with the real issue.
In general, controversial and masala movies become HITs and its like eggs on our faces. If ppl of India wanna watch such craps ... what can we do?
Just say "Sarvarisht shu Shanti'r Bhavatu"
