Yes, you read that right! Talking about the same, at an event in Mumbai in 2015, Aamir said, “I don’t like to show you violence. I am sure there are a lot of young people who have liked the show. My opinion is that it was a violent show. Karan and Arjun are my friends and I scolded them and told them that I was not impressed with it. I am not someone who can laugh at abuses and bad language, I think I have passed that age. I am not a 14-year-old who will laugh at abuses. I am not impressed. I personally have a problem with what they have done, therefore I have not seen the show. I felt that this is not my type of show, that’s why I haven’t seen it.”
Elaborating further, he added, “I have not yet seen that roast, but I have heard a lot about it. And I have seen 2-3 clips of that, I was deeply affected by that and I was most disappointed in what I was hearing. I completely believe in freedom of speech, no issues, but we have to understand we all have certain responsibilities. When I heard what was being described to me I felt it was a very violent event. I do not like such things. Violence does not mean only physical, it can be verbal too. When you insult someone, you are perpetuating violence. When you are abusing or insulting someone, you are showing the world how violent you are.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Aamir will next be seen in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ which will also star Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role. The movie will also feature their ‘3 Idiots’ co-star Mona Singh. The movie is an official Hindi remake of the Hollywood movie, ‘Forrest Gump’ that starred Tom Hanks.
