Film journalist Faridoon Shahryar tweeted;

Aamir had earlier adopted a village in Bhuj in Gujarat, which was devastated by earthquakes in 2001.

Aamir’s dedication to help the victims of water crisis in Maharashtra has earned him plenty of plaudits particularly because, not so long ago, he was dubbed as anti-national and many BJP leaders had asked him to leave India with some even suggesting to take refuge in Pakistan.

Today, Aamir Khan, with his entire team of Satyamev Jayate is tirelessly working in the drought hit areas of Maharashtra teaching people the techniques of water preservation.

Aamir Khan’s Paani Foundation has launched Satyamev Jayate Water Cup through which the actor is busy teaching the water preservation techniques in villages of three districts.
