With many celebs and political parties hitting out at Aamir Khan for his comments on rising intolerance, many Indian citizens came to the superstar's side to stand in support and raise their voice against the trolling.
The 50-year-old "PK" star during his outing at an award function on Monday evening in New Delhi had said he has been "alarmed" by a number of incidents and his wife Kiran Rao even suggested that they should probably leave the country. The star then goes on to say, "that was a disastrous statement for Kiran to make". While most of his fans and supporters are asking the trolls to listen or read the entire interview.
Here are some of Aamir's supporters on Twitter:
