  • good one sir , we just want Kunal shd also come forward and clear it that he or his company has nothing to do with AmirKhan the Baagi !! so ppl shd only boycott his movies / public appearances/ endorsements/ shows

  • Every indian n intl companies must throw out garbage like SRK and Aamir khan out of endorsing.
    Even Indians sd throw such gaddars out of India

  • I don’t think this is Amirkhan fault but it definitely Aamir Khan Makes A Political Statement. and it hurting Snapdeal App ratings and Starts Receiving 1 Star Ratings #AppWapsi.

  • Not endorsing his statements but still keeping him to endorse your brand is as hypocritical as AKs logic of not supporting Laloo but endorsing Nitish n Mahagatbandhan! #failed_logic

  • Guys, don’t be so radical. Everybody has the right to express themselves, after all, we are living in a democratic country. Snapdeal doesn’t belong to Aamir Khan, does it? It sells many products which are endorsed by the other Khans. Go and buy them if you think you hate Aamir Khan. We should all agree that intolerance has taken a new dimensions of late as the people at the top been sitting quietly. C’mon, he has just expressed his love for his family. In our capacity we say so many things which could be termed as communal. If being a commoner we can say so many things without proper thought, why do we want the celebrities to be flawless? After all, they too are humans!! We do love our families and everybody has the right to do so. India has been a secular country since the very beginning and this remains our USP and strength. Let’s continue to be together before it crumbles to dust just because of hatred and jealousy.
