Aamir Khan's PK has received a lot of criticism on social media and elsewhere for hurting religious sentiments of people. PK although opened to full houses and is considered the biggest hit of 2014, has been panned by religious groups for mocking their faith and questioning their beliefs.
Coming in defence of his film Aamir tells, ''PK does not slam any Religion or Godmen. It has merely thrown light on the hypocrisy and mal practices carried out by certain people under the guise of religion. Not all Godmen take undue advantage of the poor and needy and it is unfair to put all the lumps in one pool. There are several Godmen who indeed help out their followers and treat everyone equally. For those who have seen PK, they would know that it is a fable and a work of fiction wherein an 'alien' just wants to find his remote control and return home.''
PK saw the teaming up of Aamir Khan and Rajkumar Hirani after a period of five years.
