Weeks after his intolerant India quip, the govt has distanced itself from Aamir Khan who is the face of the Incredible India campaign. In its RTI reply the govt claims that the actor was appointed by private agencies for TV commercials of Incredible India campaign. The response has sparked massive speculation online on the fate of Aamir Khan and his continued role as the envoy of the govt’s campaign. 
 
If one were to believe the majority opinion on social media, it would appear that the govt has become wary of continuing its association with the actor, who embarrassed the govt by suggesting that intolerance was on the rise in the country at a time when the govt was under a great deal of political pressure.
