PK did tremendously well but was involved in a lot of controversies for its take on religion and faith. There was a big hullabaloo from various people who were apparently ‘hurt’ by the film. At the DVD launch of the film, Aamir addressed such people.

Said the actor, ”Clearly the film has been loved by a lot of people and that is the reason why it is such a big hit. So I am very happy about that. But I will speak for myself and not on behalf of Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra when I say that I feel very sad when even one person was hurt by our film. If someone has not liked the film, that’s a different thing. But if someone is hurt because of our film, I feel sad because that wasn’t our intention. We said what we had to. But if anyone was hurt, I would like to apologise.”
He further explained that he completely stood by the film. ”I completely stand by what we said in the film. I am not apologising for what I said in the film. I am apologising for having hurt someone because that is not our intention. Each one of us has got a different opinion and I want to respect your opinion. It may be completely different from mine. But you have full right to have your opinion. But if I have unknowingly hurt you, that wasn’t my intention. I would like to urge the people who were hurt by the film, to watch it again and try to understand what we wanted to say and how positive our message was regarding faith and religion. So I am not apologising because I said anything wrong in the film but because we unintentionally hurt people,” said the actor.
