In December, Aamir Khan made headlines not for his customary Christmas release, but instead it was for his statement that his wife Kiran Rao was contemplating on leaving India with their child for a more tolerant atmosphere. While the media and social networks went gaga talking about Aamir's remarks it seems certain wheels were set in motion at the Indian Tourism Ministry.

In fact we now hear that Aamir Khan, who has been the face of the Indian Tourism Ministry's campaign Incredible India, as their brand ambassador has since been removed. Though Aamir had clarified his statements saying, "Neither I, nor my wife Kiran, have any intention of leaving the country. We never did, and nor would we like to in the future", several politicians had criticized the actor for his comments which led to massive protests against him.
