Aamir Khan apologised to Kamal Haasan publically for not standing by him when his film VISHWAROOPAM was banned in 2013. Both the actors were present at the inauguration of FICCI FRAMES 2015.

“To stop a film after it has been through certification is certainly not right. Some groups take violence into their own hands to stop a film. That’s really sad and unfortunate. I think that happened with Mr. Kamal Haasan sometime back. I feel ashamed to say that at that time I was lost in my work. But as an industry, this is the time when we have to come together and stand by each other. I apologise to you publically that I wasn’t there at that time. I read about it later and felt very bad. I felt bad that you had you go through it and we were not there with you. It’s really unfortunate,” said the 50-year-old actor.
He further added, “I think banning a film is not right. Once a film has received a certification, then it is the responsibility of the state to ensure that people can watch the film without any fear.”
