‘If you don’t like it, then don’t watch it. Don’t be sensitive to such things, what will you hide from today’s smart youth in the age of internet?’, asked Supreme Court, dismissing the PIL against Superstar Aamir Khan and his director Rajkumar Hirani for the obscenity in the first look poster of their latest flick ‘PK’.

Earlier when Aamir’s PK first look was released, a Kanpur based lawyer and All India Human Rights and Social Justice Front have filed a petition to ban the movie PK accusing that the makers are promoting nudity and obscenity. Refusing to entertain such petitions, SC slammed the petitioners for also bringing religious facet to films. ‘Restrictions on film release would affect constitutional rights of film makers’, SC added.

On the other hand, Aamir Khan added that this nude-poster is not for cheap publicity before concluding that the next poster will not have even a transistor radio. In the first look of PK, Amir Khan is seen standing naked beside a railway track situated in a desert. A radio in his hand hides his modesty.
