Aamir Khan’s Legal Team Sends Notices to Pakistani Websites over Fake Interview

Aamir Khan was shocked when he got the information about some Pakistani websites carrying his fake interview with reference to his latest superhit movie PK. The fabricated interview contained messages in the name of religion and Islam and it was a pure attempt to impersonate the actor.

The legal team of Aamir took quick action when they got to know about the matter and had sent notices to the websites with fake content. The notice was sent within 48 hours of them coming to learn about this.

The actor believes that the fake interviews and impersonations are serious and slanderous. Earlier, Aamir filed a police complaint when he found a fake and slandering message in a social media. The cyber cell of Mumbai police took prompt action and had arrested two people.

Anand Desai, Managing Partner of DSK Legal shares said that “Mr. Aamir Khan was shocked to find an interview attributed to him on several websites on the internet in relation to his latest film “PK”. He has never given such an interview. It is clearly a fabrication by someone trying to impersonate him. It is done with the intention of drawing visitors to their website, and this is defamatory to our client. An attempt to impersonate our client is a very serious matter and we intend to take it to its logical end.”

He also added that, “Today we sent legal notices on behalf of Mr. Khan to the following, in which we have stated that the publication of the fake interview amounts to offences of impersonation, defamation and under the Information Technology Act, 2000.”

“The impersonation is a very serious infringement of our client’s rights, and we will take legal recourse. Mr. Khan will be filing a criminal complaint with the Cyber crime Cell, Mumbai Police after he returns to Mumbai.” He added.

The latest Aamir khan film PK has caused protests in India last month.  The saffron outfits tried to disrupt the screening of the film demanding the removal of objectionable scenes which insult the Hindu rituals and deities. The protesters vandalized theatres in Ahmadabad. However, the court found that there is nothing objectionable in the already censored film.

The senior-most politicians of BJP, LK Advani has, however praised the film and described it as a “wonderful and courageous film”. PK has managed to set new box-office record in Bollywood and is also getting close to break the records in Pakistani box-office as well.
