The talking standee of Aamir Khan’s P.K. avtar, which depicts the actor nude, with a radio covering his modesty, had to be removed from the Gaiety-Galaxy theatres, after a group of women approached the police with a complaint on Monday.
The group maintained that the “obscene image” should not be displayed in public. The theatre’s owner Manoj Desai confirmed this, saying, “A policeman told me that I need to remove the standee. I didn’t want the situation to get out of hand and obliged. I don’t understand why a star like Aamir resorted to such publicity.”
This is the latest in the slew of complaints against Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming film. “Such objections are bound to be raised. I noticed that most women turn their eyes away when faced with the poster,” said Desai.
