Mixed reports to PK poster, but nudity was not for publicity: Aamir Khan

The response to the first look poster of Aamir Khan’s PK has been mixed. While many have been left intrigued, a section of the audience has been ridiculing him over his nude look in the poster. However, the superstar has denied reports that he stripped for publicity. He added that the poster depicts the story of the film.

“When you will watch the film then only you will be able to understand the idea behind (the nude act on the PK poster). But I would just like to say that the kind of filmmaker, the kind of writer Rajkumar (Hirani) is, he always tries to present the things, his thinking, in a unique way and that’s why I am his huge fan.” Aamir said.

Aamir spoke to reporters on the sidelines of a special screening of Marathi film ‘Saturday Sunday’, where Aamir was invited as the chief guest on Wednesday.

“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 is the poster of PK.

“This is not for publicity, not for us at least. In fact, this poster imbibes all the elements of the film.” Aamir added.

However, the actor was aware of the extreme reactions the poster has got.

“We are getting a mixed response from the people. But I feel that when they will watch the film, their doubts will get cleared,”

Directed by Rajkumar Hirani of Munnabhai and 3 Idiots fame, PK also stars Anushka Sharma, Sanjay Dutt and Sushant Singh Rajput.

  • Ajay and kareena talk
    on Pk poster–Aamir and raju dont need publicity the poster must be having something about the film

  • The genius Aamir Khan is, we Aamirians trust and believe that he’s not gonna do that poster for no logical reason

  • Aamir And Raju Don’t Need Any publicity,,It must be requirement of script and part of the film –> Ajay Devgn

  • Honesty is the best policy. Aamir accepted that PK poster got mixed reactions. And there is one other so called superstar who gave us a magnum opus super hero flop movie and proudly kept promoting that film even after months of its release.

  • Wait and watch how Pk swipes all awards(though aamir wont come) and also bo records
    Aamir and Raju hirani two genius brains are behind it

  • SRK fans only salivate seeing others’ success.. Kaash woh movie me SRK hota.. This is the only joy and means of satisfaction for them.

  • It was totally wrong move khans are mega star they shouldnt do kinda stuff even if movie require. Waiting 4 trailer

  • thank god aamir didnt release the pk poster on 14 aug otherwise this 1 poster had taken all the limelight from some hny trailer
    Aamir is very smart than srk in marketing his films his timing is pitch perfect THE GENIUS AND SHARP AAMIR KHAN

  • we are not fools. though it doesn’t convey nudity ( acc to u and some of us may believe), you can’t say it wasn’t for publicity. atleast don’t comsider us fools. that was an act of publicity. why double standards MR.PERFECTIONIST??????

    logical janta maaf nahi karegi

  • kuch tu log kahengi na…..i personally loved the poster as will as idea behind it, but some part of audience always watch something with negative mindset.

    any way, best of luck for the trailer, i think you’ve something for speacial for us, so best of luck !

  • No offense to Amir, but sir, this is India plus you have made your way through movies like Lagaan, RDB and TZP, and a show like “Satyamev Jayte” so definitely a group of neutral audiences will not appreciate this. Plus you are in your fifties, so definitely , audiences (including your fans) will expect some sort of responsibility from you.
    But as Amir said not to judge the movie based on first look, let’s wait until its release or at least arrival of the trailer. But definitely first look of PK has raised many eyebrows. He may get positive results as well because of this controversy started six months prior to its release. Only time will tell what is there behind the curtains.

  • i m huge fan of u but nude poster of a lead actor on news paper it is worst idea i watched terminator sereis one of my favourites in hollywood. hope film will be good but m disappointed.

  • This is y aamir is one if the greatest legend ever born.he is very honest and has guts to gv himself regular reality check.he cd hv easily lied about pk poster reaction but he instead accepted that it is mixed.keep it up amir.v all love u bcz of this honesty

  • I always appreciate Amir because he thinks out of the box and always tries something new and innovative, but what he did with PK’s first look was a piece of over-Creativity and wherever this prefix OVER associates, it always invites trouble and the same is happening in this case too. Hope he will correct himself and will make some changes so that it would be accepted by majority of audiences.
    All the best !!!

  • Like the saying goes, don’t judge the book by it’s cover, there must be a story behind that poster, why he’s nude, you guys don’t even see the trailer yet..watch the movie first before you react and throw those nonsense comment…don’t you all know the word Respect & Aprreciate..

  • Sir Aamir..Respect!!! _/\_

    This poster has indeed received mixed reaction, but the movie will indeed be mindblowing.. :)

    SRK fans, don’t be jealous, hopefully our King will remake Maya Memsaab and show us his assets which leave you guys craving for more!!! :P

  • Movie is going to be good, I have no doubt about Raju’s mind. But, I don’t think a half nude poster was really “needed”. Sure, he might be nude in a scene because of script’s demand. But, I feel it wasn’t really necessary to choose that particular act for its official poster. I don’t know about people’s mindset, but what I do know is, they did manage to raise many eyebrows and get extra publicity, it was a great marketing decision and a clever one. But, I don’t buy the fact that they had no other choice, showing such act on its poster was must etc. There won’t be anything vulgar in the film, Aamir is a marketing expert.

  • My hrithik would hv nvr used such cheap posters to promote his film.shame on u aamir!instead of posing nude u should hv released a motion poster where u r continuosly shivering.p.k. teaser will also b complete third class like the poster.only my hrithik knows how to make world class trailers.go and watch bang trailer and try to learn the art of creating world class teaser!

  • Oh no this is disappointing for us to see pk poster getting mixed response,now we want our tingu to release the same poster from rear angle with chennai express in background to get the positive response.
