Actor Aamir Khan has off late been associated mostly with patriotic films like LAGAAN, MANGAL PANDEY and last year's RANG DE BASANTI, to name a few. In fact, a section of the media has started calling him the new 'Bharat', obviously referring to veteran Manoj Kumar, who was also associated with a number of milestone patriotic projects.

However, ironical as it may sound, Aamir Khan is in the midst of a controversy that is in opposition to his newfound image! As per Indore based sources, Aamir has been accused of insulting the 'Tiranga' (The Indian flag). Local Youth Congress workers are demanding his arrest.

More details in the matter are awaited.
