'Request Aamir Khan to appear in ads keeping Indian traditions in mind': MP Minister

New Delhi/IBNS: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has landed in a fresh controversy after his recent advertisement with actress Kiara Advani has been receiving flak for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Hindus.

The actor was even trolled on social media for the same.

In a recent development, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra has said that he received complaints about the ad and requested Aamir Khan to keep Indian traditions in mind when he takes up such advertisements.

According to news agency ANI, MP Home Minister Narottam Mishra said, “I received complaints & saw the ad. I request Aamir Khan to appear in ads keeping in mind Indian traditions. Such twisted acts hurt religious sentiments. He doesn't have permission to hurt anyone's religious sentiments.”

The advertisement shows Khan and Advani as a newlywed couple travelling back from their wedding and discussing that both of them did not cry during 'bidaai'.

The ad further shows the couple reaching the bride's house and the groom taking the first step into the house, as against the traditional practice for brides.

The ad is for AU Small Finance Bank.
