Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh has finally broken his silence and spoke about Aamir Khan's displeasure over controversial show "AIB Roast" and said that he has just love and respect for him.
Following controversy over "AIB Roast", Aamir had slammed the show and labelled it violent. "I was most disappointed in what I was hearing. I completely believe in freedom of speech but we have to understand that we all have a certain responsibility. When I heard what was being told to me, it was a very violent event," The Times of India quoted him as saying.
Karan Johar, Arjun Kapoor and Ranveer were part of the show, while Deepika Padukone, Sonakshi Sinha and Alia Bhatt attended as audience. While none of the actors have commented on the issue and Aamir's opinion, Ranveer spoke about it when quizzed at the India Today Conclave 2015 in Delhi on 14 March.
"The show, which also had actor Arjun Kapoor and filmmaker Karan Johar as key participants, sparked controversy for the use of expletives. Even though Aamir did not like AIB Roast, I still love him and respect him from the bottom of my heart," Ranveer told PTI.
Meanwhile, the "Band Baaja Baarat" actor also wished Aamir, who turned 50 on Saturday and praised him for his contribution to Indian cinema. "He has been a game changer of content. He is the poster boy for blurring the lines between alternate and commercial films. His bravery blends these two worlds," he said.
"All his choices 'Talaash', 'Lagaan', 'Rang De Basanti', 'Taare Zameen Par', they were all integrated. They mix the best of both worlds. He made commercial successes of the kind if content you couldn't have imagined would be commercially viable. He is a revolution," the 29-year-old added.
