Amid protests against his talk on intolerance, Aamir is in Punjab to shoot for 'Dangal'

  • Shiv Sena members tried to hold a protest near the five-star hotel in Ludhiana where the actor and his team have been staying for the past few weeks for the shoot of Dangal.

With protesters and the media following him after his controversial remarks on leaving India, the security of Bollywood star Aamir Khan — who is currently shooting for his upcoming film “Dangal” in the rural areas of Punjab's Ludhiana district — has been beefed up by Punjab Police.

The actor avoided the media on Wednesday. He was seen leaving the hotel and arriving at the shooting site in an SUV, seated on the front seat.

Shiv Sena members tried to hold a protest near the five-star hotel where the actor and his team have been staying for the past few weeks. The protesters burnt Aamir's posters and disrupted traffic.

Punjab Police has increased security around the actor's hotel and also the venue of his unit's shooting in Ludhiana district, 125 km from Chandigarh.

Aamir has been in the thick of a controversy over his remarks that his wife Kiran Rao had discussed moving out of India in view of what they perceived as growing intolerance in the country.

He returned on Tuesday to resume shooting for the movie based on a wrestler's life.

Ludhiana Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Rupinder Kaur said security around the actor, his hotel and shooting venue have been increased.

Aamir's film unit has deployed private security also around him at all times.

Shooting will continue in Ludhiana district for a few days more.

The actor had to leave for Mumbai over a week back after he collapsed on the film set and was advised rest by doctors.
