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.

  • @Navin …I am not interested in none of them’s butt….. Both are too elder than me…you observe which one best…..and I know you liked Amir’s one….you have great imagination skills …keep it within yourself …and I am not like you who can continuously speak same thing …so I don’t want to write those things either… And you have a complement for me …thanks for that. …though I agree with u….songs from your mouth come out as abuse…..

  • @Sid Original good to hear. My intention was to hear about background. Thanks to reply.

    Can u tell me how much population India is broadminded. Who can watch nude stuff together (with family, like Father, Mother, Son, Daughter etc etc etc) on big screen?

  • @ aamir haters- may be family audience nt interested but adult and young people will def watch this movie dnt forget dehli belli.
    if srk will do that pose i dnt think even bitches intrested in that film. loser srk and his fans. srk has no choice when he is new to do maya memsaab lol. deewana was superhit. and if really he had no chice then i dnt knw how many things happened with him m like casting couch etc. bechara srk.

  • all this is cheap publicity to drag attention.this is polluting India.this type of nude scene actually I required for novel stories like MAYA MEMSAAB.not for this alien film,amir is always known for his clever polluting wicked publicity that he had done always.he is an actor of good stories not a good actor of all stories basically a business man rather than an actor.all the work he had done to support salman to drag his fan towards his film.because SRKIANS never interested in this type of actors.after all what could a fanless actor could do besides working with SRK’S MADE YRF OR GOOD DIRECTOR’S MULTIACTOR FILMS IR SOUTH REMAKE.there is no other way exist for this kind of cheap attention seekers who awaited audience to prove themselves perfaketionist,these type actors are called losers.

  • @laila o laila laila

    Sorry to disappoint you my not so sweet sweetheart but I left you no compliment and I didnt want to ruin a classic song by associating it with you but guess the sarcasm flew over your beehive eh….

    Yes I would prefer staring at Aamirs behind as opposed to Sarkars but not just me as there are people who pay a small fortune to stare at Portraits of nude people sitting around drawn by great artists across museums the globe over for several centuries so theres clearly an audience out there who like such portrayals of nudity…. Guess you arent sophisticated enough or liberal /broad minded to bear such images so best get back to watching family dramas on tele then…!

  • @sari wearing Sahir

    Its partial nudity and broad minded people with liberal tendencies wouldnt have a problem watching that particular image and if they did then they most likely will look away- abit like the old days where parents would cover their childrens eyes when our hero would kiss the heroine on the big screen- funny but it happened…! Its hardly end of the world stuff- but for your peace of mind take mummy n daddy along with you so both can lend you a hand to cover up your eyes when Aamir goes nude…. Big Baby

  • @sid great to know that and its sad that they are grown men in India today like our sari wearing friend ‘sahit’ who still struggle to come to terms with images of partial nudity…. Such people would have been lost- hiding in bushes during times of the Greek civilisation some 3 millenniums ago- those guys were liberal and definitely not afraid of their masculinity…!

  • i am a srk fan but acknowledge the poster because it don’t offer any negative impact except the “Allian Factor”, poster tries to reveal that Amir khan is an Allian in “Pk” but he ‘ii be human being that’s the suspense of the film in wjole plot.

  • Yeah. I am happy to see movies which I can see with my family.. For your information I am Muslim .those words which you used may be that is your thought…but you know I am grown up in a family where we got Muslim values and tries hard to maintain as much as I can…:-D and for my upbringing I can’t look at somebody’s butt to find which one is great… I feel awkward. May be that’s my problem…and

  • I am not your girlfriend that I have to be sweet to you..well , I am not so sweet well ..that’s what I am…stop using adjective…
