Online marketplace Snapdeal on Wednesday dissociated itself from comments made by actor Aamir Khan on the alleged “growing intolerance” in India. Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is the brand ambassador of Snapdeal.
“Snapdeal is neither connected nor plays a role in comments made by Aamir Khan in his personal capacity. Snapdeal is a proud Indian company built by passionate young Indians focused on building an inclusive digital India,” the company said in a statement here.
“Everyday we are positively impacting thousands of small businesses and millions of consumers in India. We will continue towards our mission of creating one million successful online entrepreneurs in India,” the company said.
Aamir, 50, at a public function has said: “For the last six to eight months, there has been a growing despondency I would say. Kiran (wife Kiran Rao) and I have lived all our life in India.”
“When I sit at home and talk to Kiran, for the first time she said, ‘Should we move out of India?’ Now that’s a very disastrous and a big comment to make to me.”
The comment made by the actor triggered a controversy.
