Aamir Khan Files Case Over Fake Video Allegedly Defaming Him |

Mumbai: Aamir Khan has filed a case against an unidentified individual for allegedly creating and circulating a fake video portraying him falsely endorsing a political party in a campaign.

According to police reports, on April 14, Bataliwala came across a video on the social media platform 'X', wherein Aamir Khan was depicted making misleading statements about the financial status of individuals in India.
