Aamir: AIB targeted a beautiful young girl I love

Aamir Khan's strong reaction on the AIB roast, calling it violent and shameful, was not only condemned but also frowned upon by many in the industry.
Several people also called him a hypocrite as he himself produced a film like 'Delhi Belly'.
In an interview to a leading tabloid, the actor explained his reactions by saying, "I'm aware that if you sign up for the Roast, you sign up to insult each other. But, in this case, even those who hadn't signed up were being targeted, like Farida Jalal, Reema Lagoo and a beautiful, young girl I love dearly. The young girl whom I've known since she was a kid, was the butt of racist and sexist jokes. She did not even know that a live audience was watching this and couldn't protect herself. That is unfair! This is what I meant when I described the show as "violent."
Films which depict violence are fictional but this young girl is real. So my reaction was more emotional than moralistic."

Aamir further added, "If two consenting adults wish to insult each other, that's their problem. But you can't go around attacking anyone you feel like. That is no different from the physical violence we see around us and object to. And when someone uses the words "shut up", it makes me believe that these people are certainly not a part of the group that is for freedom of speech."

When he was asked about Delhi Belly, the actor stated, "As I said, I have no moral issues with the use of expletives in content meant for adults. When we made Delhi Belly we were making a film which was meant for an adult certification. In P.K. I play an alien and they don't wear clothes on his planet. For me, there's no vulgarity in nudity. That is how we are born into this world."
