When Indian actor Aamir Khan had publicly voiced his fears of being a Muslim in India, Anupam Kher was the leading Indian celebrity who had been critical of Khan and issued several tweets against him. However, recently when he was asked about certain Bollywood celebrities who feared for their life in India, Anupam said he was also one of them.
In response to the question, Anupam said everyone was scared in their own respective profession, including him. After being further questioned, he said if he declared publicly he was Hindu and wore a teeka on his forehead along with orange-ish clothes, people would brand him a RSS activist or a BJP fanatic. These were some of the tweets which Anupam had posted when the Aamir Khan controversy was going on:-
Dear @aamir_khan. Did you ask Kiran which country would she like to move out to? Did you tell her that this country has made you AAMIR KHAN.
