The actor was in for a shock recently when he read some websites carrying a fake interview with reference to his latest film PK, credited to him.
The interview carried by Pakistani websites in the name of religion and Islam was a fabricated one in attempt to impersonate him.â€Ž
As soon as Aamir got to know about this, his legal team took a swift action and sent notices to all these websites. In fact, the notice was sent to them within 48 hours of them learning about this. â€Ž
Fake interviews and impersonations are taken very seriously by the actor as they are slanderous. In the recent past too, in a similar case of fake and slandering messages on social media by an impersonator, Aamir Khan filed a Police complaint. Mumbai Police Cyber Cell had taken prompt action and arrested two people.â€Žâ€Ž
Anand Desai, Managing Partner of DSK Legal shares, â€œMr. Aamir Khan was shocked to find an interview attributed to him on several websites on the internet in relation to his latest film â€œPKâ€. He has never given such an interview. It is clearly a fabrication by someone trying to impersonate him, done with the intent of drawing visitors to their website, and is defamatory to our client. An attempt to impersonate our client is a very serious matter and we intend to take it to its logical end. Today we sent legal notices on behalf of Mr. Khan to the following, in which we have stated that the publication of the fake interview amounts to offences of impersonation, defamation and under the Information Technology Act, 2000 -
He further added, â€œThe impersonation is a very serious infringement of our client's rights, and we will take legal recourse. Mr. Khan will be filing a criminal complaint with the Cybercrime Cell, Mumbai Police after he returns to Mumbai.â€
