Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday denied reports that mention Bollywood actor Aamir Khan to be the face of a drought relief scheme called ‘Jalyukt Shivar Abhiyan.’
Earlier, it was reported that the BJP-led Maharashtra government had got Khan on board to partner with it on one of its flagship schemes, less than three months after Khan found himself in the middle of an intolerance debate, earning the wrath of the right wing.
Khan has been known to be very keen on social upliftment topics and has been known to associate with the cause of farmers.
