Amir Khan says dog 'Shahrukh' licks his feet: Arrogance or Attention-seeking tactics?



It's okay if you name a dog 'Shahrukh' but when you write it prominently in your blog post that 'Shahrukh is sitting down licking my feet', it borders on obscene arrogance.

Actor Amir Khan should have known that it is not a childish mistake. It may not be deliberate but he needn't mention this. Shahrukh Khan, the reigning superstar, is also a Bollywood actor like Amir.

And Khan, who wrote this useless thing on his blog, could have simply said that the 'dog was sitting by his side and he was feeding him biscuits'. But the actor who is quite intelligent and methodical knew that this would cause a controversy. Was he seeking attention?

By any standards, it is irresponsible. He went on to justify also that he didn't name the dog. Does he think that the readers are fool and can't distinguish between what is just an innocent information or a cheap way to get publicity.

The news channels have picked up the news and are screaming for the last couple of hours. The website address Aamir Khan's blog is http://www.aamirkhan.com/. We are neither die-hard fan of either of the actors nor dislike them but blogging freedom doesn't mean that everybit of trivia should be written on your blog.

Whatever. It is surely in bad taste. The 765-odd comments on the blog suggest the same. Many advised the actor to write only if he has got a subject to make it into a blog post.

Aamir Khan is acting like a stupid little boy not a grown man. Any respect I had for him is GONE. He will do ANYTHING for publicity.

Its not good for Aamir Khan.
Shahrukh is a very good person (among my favourite - Salman, Shahrukh, Akshay and also Aamir)and such type of act done by Aamir shows his personality. Aamir, your well wisher don't like it. You are a good actor and you must be a good indian/citizen.

Dear Amir,

Like many other fans in India and abroad I was really your fan. But having seeing the news like this I will never see your movies again. I am not a fan of Sharukh Khan. Instead by this type of remarks I dont think your publicity or advertisement or marketing what ever you think will not grow up. It was a great blow to us who were your deadly fan. Competetion is very good ! But not like this . Still now I am in doubt , do yiu have really passed the remarks ?!! Yor film "Lagan", "sarfarosh", "Tare Jomin Par" have reached you in the sky. But what make you to fall down ?!!!

You people ought to be ASHAMED of yourself for interpreting that comment in the way you have. The comment had absolutely no underlying address towards Shahrukh Khan, as Aamir very specifically mentioned. Your interpretation is just a typical example of the prevailing mindset that will jump at any remote opportunity to create controversy, and gossip at the expense of other people's lives. For God's sake I don't like following Bollywood movies, I don't even revere the actors like you guys do but Aamir Khan is one hell of an actor/director. Your reaction to this is unbelievably pathetic. Would you sink so low as to demean one of ur most amazing superstars?

I Think Aamir khan is good actor as well sahrukh khan.& there is something huminity which is far high than any profession. that may be Piloting, engeering, doctors, actors, jurnalist. if you are not a good person ,then you are not a good actor aw well.

i don't think this is kind of humor that you will treat some1 like a Dog.This is too bad & if you are doing for publicity there are many way for publity.

I think A good human can never be treat like this for what that may be....MAY BE PUBLICITY or BUSINESS or MONEY. i am a big fan of ammir khan. But i hate his this stupid work.
