Aamir defends PK nudity, calls it key art

Superstar Aamir Khan, who has left many intrigued and many ridiculing him over his nude look in the poster of his upcoming film PK, says it’s not for publicity. Calling it ‘key art’, he says it depicts the story of the film.

The poster of Rajkumar Hirani’s PK features Aamir posing nude with a strategically placed boombox hiding his modesty. While some appreciated the dare bare act, some even criticised it and even called it a ‘publicity stunt’.

Talking about it, Aamir said: ‘When you (audience) will watch the film then only you will be able to understand the idea behind (the poster). But I would just like to say that the kind of filmmaker, the kind of writer Rajkumar is, he always tries to present the things, his thinking, in a unique way and that’s why I am his huge fan.’

Aamir spoke on the sidelines of a screening of Marathi film Saturday Sunday here Wednesday.

Citing the example of the poster of one of his past production and directorial debut, ‘Taare Zameen Par’, he said: ‘In the poster of Taare Zameen Par, the child (actor Darsheel Safary) is sitting in the front on the school bench and I am sitting behind him. So it is a kind of key art...the image that tells you much about the story and so is the poster of PK.’
