Aamir Khan is is the highlight of Bollywood and India but after a long time he has gotten one thing less from his schedule. It is said that Amir Khan is no longer a brand representative of the Indian government’s vast campaign known as Incredible India.
Initially it was rumored that he is no longer the ambassador because his contract has expired. It was said that his contract with the Tourism Ministry has come to an end after his remarks came to surface about ‘rising intolerance’ which was surfacing in India.
Amir Khan’s remarks landed him in thick soup as even Anupam Kher look towards Twitter to pass his message out to the actor on his apparently “anti-India” comments.
Nevertheless, the tourism ministry rapidly clarified its position by giving out the proper explanation.
“Our contract was with McCann Worldwide. It was the agency which had hired him [Aamir Khan]. Since the contract with the agency is no more, automatically the arrangement with the actor no longer exists,” Union Tourism Minister Mahesh Sharma stated.
After the statement was issued, Aamir Khan welcomed the government’s decision with open arms.
“It has been an honour and a pleasure for me to be the Brand Ambassador for the Incredible India campaign for the past 10 years,” said elevated Amir Khan. “I was happy to be of service to my country and will always be available for it. I would like to clarify that all public service films I have done till date have all been free of any cost to me.” He further added
Amir Khan then elegantly accepted that the administration is heading in a dissimilar direction.
“It is the prerogative of the government to decide whether they need a brand ambassador for any campaign, and if so, who that ambassador should be. I respect the decision of the government to discontinue with my services. I am sure they will take all appropriate steps to do what is best for the country. Whether I am brand ambassador or not, India will remain Incredible, and that’s the way it should be.” Bollywood Actor Amir Khan
When the minister was asked about the matter, he clearly specified that Amir Khan is no more the brand ambassador of the Tourism Ministry.
The minister said “Definitely not”.
It has also been rumored that Amitabh Bachchan has now become the new talisman for the nationwide campaign.
