The minister also said that actors with such opinions should not be made brand ambassadors as they are 'specialist in somersault'.

"Incredible India not worth living - Aamir Khan. Don't make them Brand Ambassadors. They are just actors specialist in making somersault," the Health and Sports stated in a tweet.

The outspoken minister had yesterday given a new twist to the intolerance issue, alleging some people were raking it up at Pakistan's behest to thwart India's chances of getting permanent membership of the UN Security Council. The senior minister also termed Khan's remarks on the intolerance issue as 'unnecessary and untimely' and urged him to review it.

An ambassador of 'Incredible India', a government's campaign to promote tourism, Khan was at the centre of a raging debate on Monday after he expressed 'alarm and despondency' over the rise in incidents of intolerance in the last six to eight months.
