Indian actor Aamir Khan's 'PK' has been in news ever since its release.

Several religious groups have staged protest against the movie demanding its ban. Radical groups in few cities in India have also disrupted screening and vandalised movie halls.

But the latest controversy has left even Aamir baffled.

A Pakistani website has carried an interview of Aamir Khan which the actor claims to have never given.

Now, the actor has sent a legal notice to the website for carrying his 'fabricated' interview on religion with reference to his latest release 'PK'.

Anand Desai, managing partner of DSK Legal, who sent the notice on Aamir's behalf, said the actor was wrongly attributed for the interview.

NDTV report quoted  Desai saying, "Mr. Aamir Khan was shocked to find an interview attributed to him on several Pakistani websites in relation to his latest film PK. He has never given such an interview. It is clearly a fabrication by someone trying to impersonate him, done with the intent of drawing visitors to their website, and is defamatory to our client."

"... Today we sent legal notices on behalf of Mr Khan to the websites... The impersonation is a very serious infringement of our client's rights, and we will take legal recourse. Mr Khan will be filing a criminal complaint with the Cybercrime Cell, Mumbai Police after he returns to Mumbai," Desai said. Aamir, 49, is currently in the US.
