Aamir too spoke about it recently. When asked if such campaigns against his films make upset him, Aamir said that it makes him "sad". The superstar told a leading newspaper: "Yes, I feel sad. Also, I feel sad that some of the people who are saying this, in their heart, they believe that I am someone who doesn't like India. In their hearts they believe, but it is untrue. It is rather unfortunate that some people feel that way. That's not the case. Please don't boycott my film. Please watch my film."
