Soon after the news erupted the media that Aamir Khan had offered Oh My God director Umesh Shukla an amount of Rs 8 crore to stop the shooting because the film’s theme resembled to that of PK, Aamir Khan jumped in to defend himself and his PK director Raju Hirani, saying that whatever is being propagated in this regard is all lies.
Many have criticized PK pointing out that the film’s second half is no different from Akshay Kumar starrer OMG: Oh My God. What added fuel to this were the reports of Aamir Khan paying off an amount of Rs 8 crore to filmmaker Umesh Shukla to stall his film.
When Aamir was asked on the same, he reacted saying, “There are 100 films of the same theme. It doesn’t mean we are copying. And reports stating we tried paying off Umesh Shukla for stalling OMG: Oh My God are all lies.”
