Aamir Khan’s P.K. poster continues to generate news, albeit for wrong reasons.
The latest we hear is that Mumbai’s famous Gaiety-Galaxy theatres have removed the talking standee of the PK poster after complaint from a group of women.
The womenfolk apparently felt that the poster is “obscene” and therefore should not be displayed in a public place. They approached the police with their complaint and the cops further told the theatre owner Manoj Desai to remove the standee.
Desai removed the standee without protest. He says he didn’t want the situation to get out of hand. He also adds that women cinegoers aren’t pleased on seeing the standee of PK.
The first poster of PK has Aamir Khan posing nude, but hiding his modesty behind a tape recorder. The standee also has a recorded voice of Aamir which plays automatically.
PK is directed by Rajkumar Hirani. The film’s poster has turned out to be controversial. A Kanpur lawyer has already filed a complaint against Aamir Khan and the makers of the film for ‘obscene’ poster. The poster is also said to be copied/inspired from the cover art of a Portuguese musician’s single.
