Aamir crit­i­cised, trolled for ‘waiter’ com­ment

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tors and analo­gies don’t seem to be work­ing well to­gether. Af­ter Salman Khan, now ac­tor Aamir Khan has come un­der fire for a com­ment in which he com­pared him­self to a waiter. And this, af­ter he was praised for call­ing Sallu’s rape anal­ogy “un­for­tu­nate and in­sen­si­tive” at a pro­mo­tional event for his up­com­ing film on Mon­day.

At the do, Aamir was asked about re­leas­ing the poster of his film be­fore Salman’s next. While an­swer­ing, Aamir said, “I al­ways feel when Salman en­ters a room, you feel a star has come. When I en­ter, I feel a waiter has come.” How­ever, he im­me­di­ately apol­o­gised. “Sorry, I shouldn’t have said that as wait­ers are great peo­ple. I feel when I walk into (a room), I feel it’s no­body as I en­ter silently. When Salman, Shah Rukh en­ter you feel (a) star has en­tered. I don’t have that qual­ity. They are big­ger stars than me,” Aamir added.

But his apol­ogy didn’t do much dam­age con­trol and he was trolled on Twit­ter. Sam­ple this: “Aamir Khan crit­i­cises Salman Khan’s rape re­mark and goes on to make a ‘waiter’ re­mark. Bol­ly­wood,” tweeted @am­rutti. An­other user, @ vishal­con­sumed wrote, “Aamir Khan while preach­ing that Salman’s com­ment was in­sen­si­tive ends up in­sult­ing those who works as waiter. #Karma #Ac­torShouldJustAct.” @navneet_­mundhra wrote, “Aamir apol­o­gised for ‘Waiter’ anal­ogy... not sure Aamir is aware that Salman also im­me­di­ately re­tracted.”
