Aamir, who was answering a question as to why he had been endorsing the product in the context of the demand for ban on the drink, which was allegedly posing a health threat, he shot back '' saying ''milk, water, eggs and even many vegetables you eat have more pesticide content than Coke.''

Parrying a question that school children would be influenced to consume the harmful soft drink if it was endorsed by a popular star like him, Aamir said in the US, school children do not figure in the advertisements for Coke.

''I endorsed coke as I simply love that drink'', Aamir asserted, adding ''I have been enjoying Coke since my younger days.''
