The newspaper quoted Resul as saying, "A lot of sound post-production work was done on the show. It was treated just like a film. Like how you sound (mixing) is handled in a film so that you can sort of emotionally blackmail audiences. That's what was done with SMJ."
An angry Resul took to Twitter and wrote, "Misinterpretation and a doctored story quoting me on#satyamevjayate. Sad journalism. Spoke on Tim Sebastian shw, dis came out!"
Resul Pookutty further added, "High regards for @aamir_khan and his integrity and commitment. I'm sorry to have been a reason to cause hurt to @aamir_khan. I never intent to. what smj has done is what our govt couldn't do in 65y. I have immense respect and adulation for the work@aamir_khan has been doing. I want to stay corrected. My earlier tweets on smj are examples."
