Aamir Khan ropes in Alia Bhatt to join him for fund raiser event – The idea was to look for a youth icon who could encourage the young generation to partake in promoting water conservation.
Mumbai: For the third edition of the event organised by the actor’s Paani Foundation, Aamir Khan had urged college students to volunteer for the event being held on Maharashtra Day. The Bollywood superstar is leading a team of about 1 lakh volunteers today to villages for a Mahashramdaan. According to a report, Alia Bhatt is set to accompany Khan. The idea was to look for a youth icon who could encourage the young generation to partake in promoting water conservation across the drought-ridden state of Maharashtra.
A source told to Mid-Day, “Aamir was keen to get a youth icon associated with the project so that the initiative appeals to the young generation. Alia was only happy to be part of it. She will take some time off from the shoot of Kalank to join him for the day. However, Alia will return to the city by 2.30 pm to be part of promotions for her upcoming spy-drama ‘Raazi’.”
While the event is set to be held across 75 talukas and 24 districts in the state, Alia will join the team for the proceedings in Latur, Maharashtra.
On the work front, Alia will be next seen in ‘Raazi’ and Aamir is currently working on ‘Thugs of Hindostan’.
