Panaji: Media-inspired negativity is killing the country, filmmaker Priyadarshan said on Wednesday, in the wake of the row triggered by Bollywood star Aamir Khan’s comments about intolerance.

The national award winning director of films like “Virasat” and “Hera Pheri” also accused the media of blowing random incidents out of proportion.

He said the media was least interested in developmental aspects of news.

Aamir Khan during an interview on Monday had said his wife Kiran Rao asked him whether they should move out of India. The actor on Wednesday issued another statement, saying he and his wife were proud to be Indians.

“Neither I, nor my wife Kiran, have any intention of leaving the country. We never did, and nor would we like to in the future,” he said.
