Aamir`s intolerance comment was extreme, not irrelevant, says Sonam

Karachi, Dec. 13: Aamir Khan’s much hyped intolerance statement got him a lot of haters and offenders, but he has also got a supporter in the face of Sonam Kapoor, who thinks that though the actor’s comments were too extreme, they weren’t irrelevant.

The 30-year-old actress said in a conference that intolerance has always been in India, people have seen riots happening in the country from past 60 years, adding that there are too many religions, languages and cultures, but at the same time, there will always be judgments. But the fact that people know about it is a very healthy aspect, reports the Dawn.

Talking about the ‘PK’ star’s controversy, Sonam said, “Aamir has already given clarification on his statement. If somebody is critiquing something it doesn’t make him anti-national. Constructive criticism is always healthy.”

The ‘Khoobsurat’ star added, “Aamir, one of the biggest stars of the country, said something and people became so negative towards him. Now, do you think he will ever speak about any issue like that? May be it was too extreme what he said, but it was not irrelevant.”

Sonam was last seen in the family drama’ Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ along with Salman Khan. (ANI)
