After the controversial bare-all first poster of Rajkumar Hirani's PK, which showed Aamir Khan in the buff, generated a lot of heat, the second poster released on Wednesday shows the superstar donning a traditional Rajasthani attire.

"During Dhoom 3 my cap got very famous and Salman was wearing the cap on Bigg Boss, so, now I want to test his friendship. So let's see can he do this - he removed his shirt, now can he remove his pants?" Aamir asked, humorously at the launch of the second poster for PK.



"In the last 25 years, whatever I have done - be it 3 Idiots, Lagaan, or Sarfarosh - they are on the one side and this character is on the other side. It's one of the most important and difficult roles," he said.

"There are so many moments in the film and some will make you smile, some will make you cry. PK is one of my favourite films I have done till date."

Aamir Khan has admitted that he always believes in following his dreams. Speaking at the Young Inspirator's seminar, the Dhoom 3 star said, "I think each one of us finds our own path. So what is important to me, which I would like to share with you, is that I always believe in following my dreams."

The "poster marketing" is a part of the promotional campaign which Aamir said is aimed at "confusing" the audiences. "Normally, films promos are launched first but we have decided to launch a series of posters with PK. Every two to three weeks, there will be a new poster which will be introduced. We will have a poster campaign. We will release eight to ten posters till the time the film is released," Aamir told reporters.

In contrast to his bare-all avatar in the first poster, where he is seen holding only a transistor to cover his private parts, the second poster shows Aamir in a traditional Rajasthani attire, along with a trumpet bearing the name Bhairosingh Band. "We want to confuse the people with the release of every poster. But there is a story in each and every image that we reveal," the actor said.

Reacting to the controversy over the first poster, Aamir said, "I have achieved what I wanted to out of the first PK poster. I have got some good reactions from people in the industry."

On social media replete with jokes over his nude avatar, Aamir said, "some people have loved it (poster) and some people didn't like it. The jokes were really funny. Some people even posed in the same fashion and we really enjoyed it. But you all will understand once you see the film. I am happy with the response."

Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film also features Anushka Sharma, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani and Sanjay Dutt in important roles. The film is set for release in December this year. 

"I am very passionate about whatever I do, whether it's my work or any sport, hanging out with friends, whether it's having argument, or laughing about something," he added.
