While many have gone on records, applauding the bold move that Aamir took with the film, many have also criticised him calling this an act of 'cheap publicity'.
When asked about the controversies on his dare bare act, Aamir clearly confronted everyone saying nothing has been done for 'cheap publicity'. He called the poster 'a kind of key art' and also said that it reflects the story in every possible way.
Aamir's earlier releases too had an untold story by the medium of its posters. For example, the 'Taare Zameen Par' poster had Aamir sitting behind Darsheel Safary's character on a bench, thereby bringing out a lot about the story of the film.
With a legal lawsuit filed against Aamir and the PK team, and many online jokes being sparked around the same, Aamir cleared that although he has been getting a lot of mixed response from people, he is sure that people will understand the need of this act after they see the film.
Meanwhile, it is heard that Aamir and team are planning to follow this up with the release of few more posters, keeping the curiosity intact!
