Indore: Super star Aamir Khan's 'intolerance' remarks continue to haunt him with a senior BJP leader suggesting "treatment" to his upcoming movie Dangal in the same way that was done to Shah Rukh Khan's 'Dilwale', whose business was marred by protests from Hindutva groups.

BJP general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Friday hinted at teaching a lesson to Aamir by saying at a public function that "treatment to one has been done. Now it is time for the other to be treated. 'Dangal me mangal karna hai'. You should keep this in mind.”

 

"When anybody says that intolerance is rising in our society, then it makes me a little angry. Then he has to be treated. His treatment is very necessary."

Though he did not name either Shah Rukh or Dilwale, his reference seemed to be aimed at him as his last movie was marred by protests at several places. Khan, too, had earlier spoken about rising intolerance in Indian, prompting the BJP leader to brand him a "traitor", a remark he withdrew later facing public backlash.

Vijayvargiya's remarks came a day after another party general secretary, Ram Madhav, had denounced Aamir Khan's comments on 'intolerance', saying he should not preach about the country's prestige only to an auto-rickshaw driver but also his wife.
