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.

  • Sarkar fans wanted Aamir to wear a lungi but Aamir dissapointed them, so they are creating negativity for the poster.

  • 1st thing every movie poster is just for publicity,

    2nd is, its the fact what aamir said definately its abt related to story n smthing which can understandable after watching movie,

    i’m not so impressed with 1st poster of PK, its not even average good for me, but i believe in Aamir and Rajkumar, as i believe in Hrithik… Movie would definately out as classic

    a part of the movie. To be able to do a
    debut film with such a visionary
    director and such a huge star like
    Hrithik is a dream come true for me.”

  • I don’t know why people react without knowing the whole story aamir is working in industry more the 20 years & raj kumar hirani sir is one of the best director so its clear that they will not do any thing without reason. If aamir sir is shown nude their must b some reason in it.

  • @ gj007 aamir is a great actor but when he hard worked for mangal pandey atleast 4 year but his movie bombd at bix office nobody talk about 4 year hard work of aamir so dnt u thnk raju cant give a bad film but i hope this will be a good movie. Aamir haters specialy may be this is worst decision of aamir to promote nute poster first but he did fantastic movies in past like raja hindustani, sarfarosh, lagaan, rdb, dch, tzp, 3 idiot. Your srk hr is best in promote overseas cinema here in india. tell me how many movies ur hr, srk worked who related to poor mango people. result u r jaichand of indian cinema and we feel proud to be fan of Salman aamir, Ajay, alshay. so what if u fools called us bhojpuri even bhijpuri is indian language. dobara mat poochna. m a dir hard fan of Salman.

  • I told u guys on 1st day that this is a huge project.. This is raju’s movie and he his just brilliant. I am extrmly excited for this great amir-raj k hirani-sanjay dutt combo.. Bcz they give us my all time fvrts like 3 idiots and munna bhai..

  • @chulli bro i don’t what do you get by unnecessary bad cmt about aamir. He has not done anything wrong to you he just doing his work if people like his movie they come and see no one is forcing them to watch his movies. I am a huge fan of Salman,Aamir&Hrithik but it doesn,t mean that i abuse other actors i never read srk articles or rearly cmnt on it so pls all don’t write any thing bad about other actor. If aamir sir has short hight so what u will never achive respect even of his nail size in entire life.

  • but #Thullu how an Alien come to know,he has to hide specially that part of body….and how Alien get nothing but a radio to do that??

  • @bivan you mistaken n are subconsciously thinking about Sarkars shabby Devdas remake where he went to any lengths like propositioning himself to clients in return for a sip of ‘sickrum’….! :-P

    PK is the Aliens name you illiterate

  • @intellectual nipin Nice to meet one member from the league of shadows sorry household of Windsor ooopps I mean nipins whose IQ is atleast in double digits….!

    Well done son and a superb comment

  • No surprising. Its happen with Indians. When he even was bashed for his show Satyamev Jayate than this poster would definitely raised many eyebrows. Don’t worry we Aamir fans with you sir. We trust you and raju sir. Their intention not wrong, yes there is possibility to come with different poster but the faith of film won’t changed with a poster. Buzz can be affected if trailer will be bad otherwise Pk is most awaited film of the year.

  • Aamir has done good job by clearing that the poster was not for publicity and all intelligent people already knew this that this would be the demand of the script.PK is declared as the most awaited movie of the year in many polls and new 300 crore club is expected from this movie so there is no need to do vulgar things for publicity and we agree with Aamir that it must be the demand of the story like the kiss in 3 idiots was demand of the story.
