Mr.&Mrs.; Amir Khan. When things are going wrong and the system needs correction,repair it,mend it.Don’t run away from it. That is Heroism!— rishi kapoor (@chintskap) November 24, 2015
Maybe #AamirKhan only wanted to leave India to increase his chances of bumping into Modi.— Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) November 24, 2015
Dear Anupam Kher, #AamirKhan was talking about Kiran Rao, not Kiran Kher. Hope this clears the confusion. Jai Ho 🙂— Shirish Kunder (@ShirishKunder) November 24, 2015
AAMIR is worried about intolerance! Think about the husbands in India who actually listen to their wives!— SUHEL SETH (@suhelseth) November 24, 2015
