    Aamir Khan extends financial aid of Rs. 25 lakhs to flood ravaged Assam, earns Chief Minister's gratitude

    Bollywood star Aamir Khan recently extended help towards the CM relief fund of Assam. Currently, the state of Assam is going through one of the biggest crises this year due to devastating floods. Over 21 lakh people continued to remain in distress under the impact of the deluge. 

    In the wake of ravaging surges, several Indian philanthropists are coming ahead to lend help. With their homes and fields submerged, several families in Assam have no option but to inadvertently risk conflict with wildlife in an elephant corridor in Nellie’s Khulahat Forest. Not only are the people without shelters, but there is a scarcity of water and hunger. The catastrophe has gotten bigger than ever and the residents are going to fall into a financial dilemma.

    Taking to his social media, the Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswas Sarma, shared a gratitude note dedicated to the star. He wrote “ Eminent Bollywood actor Amir Khan extended a helping hand to the flood-affected people of our State by making a generous contribution of ₹25 lakh towards CM Relief Fund. My sincere gratitude for his concern and act of generosity”. 

    On the work front, Aamir Khan is busy promoting his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha which is all set to arrive in cinema halls on August 11. The movie is an official Hindi remake on Tom Hanks ' cult classic Forrest Gump .
