Why the reactions to Aamir Khan’s comments are much ado about nothing

First lets look at what Aamir Khan really said:

He said, “We read in newspapers about what is happening in the country and I have been alarmed by a number of incidents. There has been a growing sence of despondency. When I have a discussion with Kiran at home she considers whether we must move out of India. Now that’s a very disastrous statement for Kiran to make to me.”
Here is the link to the video.

Now, what is wrong about what he said? As an Indian he has every right to voice his opinion. Put yourself in his shoes. You’re at home having a discussion with your wife, family or friends about the news and what is happening around you, discussing your future etc. How many times would you have discussed about studying abroad or settling abroad? How many time would you have criticised the Govt. or the lack proper roads or sanitation and other things? Does that make you unpartioric? Are you less of an Indian beacause of the conversation you have with your family or friends? Are you anti-national? How can people be so na├»ve?

In my opinion this whole issue has been blown out of proportion and the negative reactions only goes towards proving his point.
