By “taught one a lesson”, Vijayvargiya was referring to Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Dilwale’ which faced protests at many places because of the actor’s comments on intolerance in the country.

Another prominent BJP leader Ram Madhav had earlier taken a dig at Aamir Khan advising the actor to preach his wife about the rich culture and India’s prestige. These comments have came in the wake of Aamir’s Khan remarks about the growing intolerance in India. Khan, at a public event, had said that he had a sense of “insecurity’ and “fear” deep within the society, shared by his family.
The 50-year-old actor had said that his wife Kiran Rao suggested that they will probably leave the country.
“That’s a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make. She fears for her child. She fears what the atmosphere around us will be.”
Aamir is currently shooting for the film, which is on wrestling in Punjab. Aamir is playing the role of Mahavir Singh Phogat, who teaches wrestling to his daughters Babita Kumari and Geeta Phogat.
Aamir Khan also ceased to be the brand ambassador of Incredible India campaign after his contract with the ad agency hired for the purpose came to an end. Anti-BJP forces saw it as an attempt at getting back at the actor following his remarks. It is for the first time that an ethnic Kashmiri girl will appear in a Bollywood movie in a prominent role.
