Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is making the most of his time at home with family members amid the coronavirus lockdown. Unlike his contemporaries who showed-off their culinary skills and workout videos, Aamir suited up with wife Kiran Rao, and daughter Ira Khan, to watch the premiere of Netflix’s Mrs Serial Killer starring Jacqueline Fernandez.
The gesture was in support of debutante Zayn Khan. Ira shared the pictures on her Instagram where the clan is dressed up fancy, Aamir is seen flaunting his natural greys.
Last month, a video claiming that Khan made a surprise monetary donation to the underprivileged in a unique way has surfaced online.
The TikTok video, which has not been verified, claimed that Aamir sent a truck with bags of wheat flour packets, to be distributed among the needy. It states that on April 23 the truck arrived in Delhi in an underprivileged area amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The vehicle was loaded with one-kilo packets of flour.
While many refused to take the packets because they felt one kilo would hardly serve any purpose in their families, the video mentions that those who took the packets were in for a surprise.
Within each packet of flour, it turns out there was Rs 15,000 hidden in cash.
Claiming that Aamir was behind the special gesture, the anchor of the TikTok video said in this way Aamir ensured that the money reached the really needy people because only those who were absolutely hardpressed would line up for just one kilo of flour.
The authenticity of the video or the incident has not been established yet.
Aamir is not known to announce his social service publicly, unlike most other superstars of Bollywood.
On the other hand, Aamir also contributed to the PM-CARES Fund and the CM relief fund of Maharashtra. This is in addition to donating to the funds, the 'Lagaan' actor extended support to the daily wage workers who were employed in his upcoming film 'Laal Singh Chaddha.'
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the details about Khan's donations on his social media. "AamirKhan donates to... #PMCares #Maharashtra Chief Minister Relief Fund, Extended support to the daily wage workers of his forthcoming film #LaalSinghChaddha," tweeted Adarsh.
