Post Manikarnika release, Kangana Ranaut had attacked various Bollywood celebrities including Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt for not backing her films
As part of an annual tradition, the actor kick started his special day by cutting a cake with wife Kiran Rao and media. Later during a small interactive session, Amir Khan spoke about the importance of Voting in a democracy and also about Kangana Ranaut criticism.
Superstar Aamir Khan on Thursday said he was not aware of Kangana Ranaut being upset with him for not supporting her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
Kangana, in an interview, had claimed that she had attended the screening of Aamir's films Dangal and Secret Superstar, but the actor did not return the favour when it came to her movies.
"She was upset with me? Why?" Aamir asked when informed about Kangana's statement.
"She never told me she is upset with me. When I meet her I will ask her," he added.
Post "Manikarnika" release, Kangana had attacked various Bollywood celebrities including Aamir and Alia Bhatt for not backing her films.
During the interaction with media, Aamir also spoke about the importance of Voting in a democracy. "Since it's the election year, I wish the people of India. The biggest democracy should go and vote. They should go and vote. They should all vote and make the elections a success," the actor said.
When asked if he will support BJP this election season, he said, "No, I don't promote any political party."
Speaking about one of the major issues that arise during the elections, Aamir requested election commission to make provision for people working and staying abroad to vote.
"There are a lot of people who live/work outside of India and wish to vote, but they can't. Or many people who are unwell and can't reach the ballot, the election commission should think of a solution for those people, as they deserve the opportunity. I don't know what the solution is but we should think of them," Aamir urged.
Especially addressing the first time voter during his message, Aamir asserted that they should think before finally casting their vote."I can't tell people how or whom they should vote for, but I can tell to look for their cause. What is that one thing that matters to them the most and then if the person in their constituency matches that, please go ahead and vote," he said.
