As per the recent news, Snapdeal one of India’s biggest Online retailer company has decided not to renew Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s contract as brand ambassador of the company. The one-year endorsement deal ends later this month.
Khan was at the centre of a controversy last year after he made a comment about rising intolerance in the country, and how because of some certain incidents his wife Kiran Rao is so disturbed that she even wants to leave the country. This issue blew the social media .
After the actor’s remarks on intolerance , many people opposing his comments took to the Google Play store and started giving the Snapdeal app poor rating, demanding the company to remove him as its brand ambassador .
Snapdeal had stopped using Khan in its ads after the controversy broke.
In the same manner last month the tourism ministry has already dropped Khan as brand ambassador of the campaign that the actor was associated with since 2009. He was replaced by Amitabh Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra.
