After the news that Aamir Khan was removed as a Brand Ambassador of Incredible India, Ministry of Tourism released clarification denying the reports. Today Aamir Khan clarified further on the issue.
Aamir Khan said “It has been an honour and a pleasure for me to be the Brand Ambassador for the Incredible India campaign for the past 10 years. I was happy to be of service to my country, and will always be available for it.”
“I would like to clarify that all public service films I have done till date have all been free of any cost to me. It is always an honour for me to be of service of my country, and this is how it will always be.”
He continued, “It is the prerogative of the government to decide whether they need a brand ambassador for any campaign, and if so, who that ambassador should be. I respect the decision of the government to discontinue with my services. I am sure they will take all appropriate steps to do what is best for the country.”
Finally, he signed off with, “Whether I am brand ambassador or not, India will remain Incredible, and that’s the way it should be.”
The statement by Ministry of Tourism specifically mentioned that Aamir won’t be associated with Incredible India because his contract has ended and not because he was removed hence putting all the speculations to rest.
