Respected aamir sir.

Sir u leaving a project due to 1 person may hamper many others career and financial. U are the best and ur movie will make money so think about it once again for the sake of others associated. Love you sir as a human being

And Hrithik the sleeze completed an entire film with another sleeze

Aamir wanted to walk out of Moghul since some time... Good excuse to use,i can also benefit his image..

I don't agree to boycott someone just because allegation was brought by a woman. He should get a fair chance to present his side of the story.

My respect and faith in Aamir Khan is being restored again.
