"Aamir Khan is a friend too and we did a lot of films together like Dil, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, but that time he wasn't 'Aamir Khan'. He then, rightly, over the years cultivated himself. He then thought he should give opinions on everything. Whether it's the controversy of AIB, or whether it is this (intolerance) or that"

Veteran actor Anupam Kher said that he respects Aamir Khan, but feels that the superstar has developed a habit of giving opinions on everything.
Mr Kher, 60, had earlier lashed out at Aamir for saying that he was "alarmed" by the rising intolerance in India.
"I don't have any problem with anybody. They all are my friends. Aamir is a friend too and we did a lot of films together like Dil, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, but that time he wasn't 'Aamir Khan'. He then, rightly, over the years cultivated himself and became Aamir Khan. He then thought he should give opinions on everything. Whether it's the controversy of AIB, or whether it is this (intolerance) or that," Mr Kher said. (Also Read: Raju Hirani Explains Why Aamir Khan's Comments on 'Intolerance' Are 'Innocent')
The actor was speaking on the topic of "Whose intolerance is it anyway" at a literature festival in Mumbai.
The 60-year-old Khosla Ka Ghosla actor shared an incident from the 1991 film Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, where Aamir had a problem with Mr Kher's interpretation of his character.
"(Mahesh) Bhatt sahab told me Aamir is saying your interpretation of your character is rubbish. This is not how he thought the character should be portrayed. So, sometimes people have this habit that they think what I am saying is right and rest of the world is not right," he said.

Mr Kher said he admires the work of the Ghajini actor, including his TV show Satyamev Jayate, but feels that a celebrity should be responsible.
"I have great respect for him but I just felt with great stardom comes a sense of responsibility. It is very important to have a sense of responsibility. I admire him and that is why I was a little sad. It's important to give hope sometimes and not spread fear," he said.
