विज्ञापनों और फिल्मों में भारतीय परंपराओं और रीति-रिवाजों को तोड़-मरोड़ कर प्रस्तुत करने से धार्मिक आस्थाएं आहत होती हैं।— Dr Narottam Mishra (@drnarottammisra) October 12, 2022

The controversy erupted after Aamir Khan's recent advertisement was released, in which he was accompanied by Bollywood actress Kiara Advani. The ad depicted Aamir and Kiara as a newly married couple, but the real controversy arises from the ad's message.
After the wedding, the bride invites Aamir Khan to her home. At the same time, the groom takes the first step inside the house. Many people have expressed their displeasure with this advertisement. People have claimed that things depicted in this advertisement are offensive to Hindu customs. Since then, Aamir and Kiara have faced backlash on the internet.
