Anupam considers Aamir his dear friend


Anupam Kher, who had bombarded Aamir Khan with some harsh tweets in Aamir statements on growing intolerance in the country, says that he considers the perfectionist as his dear friend. “I have great friends, including Aamir. I would like to believe that he is a very dear friend of mine,” Anupam said at the launch of a Society magazine cover featuring him. Anupam said he was informed about the controversy by his taxi driver who asked if Aamir was right in saying that there is “growing despondency” in the nation. “That triggered it off. It was a spontaneous reaction and I’ve stuck to it because there is nothing wrong (in what I said). “I just said that this is a great country, so as celebrities we have to say things which do not create fear in smaller places. I don’t want to raise a flag on the issue. If I was politically correct, I wouldn’t have said it. I don’t want to come across as a crusader who wants to talk about it everywhere. I have great love for Aamir, and for everybody,” shared Anupam.
