Superstar Aamir Khan has always been an avid admirer and great supporter of social causes and this time he has appreciated the Misaal Mumbai initiative, hailing it great.
‘Misaal Mumbai’, an initiative by artist Rouble Nagi, who has painted over 285 slum houses in Mumbai, has found a fan in Aamir Khan, who shared a video of her work on his social media account.
Sharing the video on Twitter, Aamir wrote: “Hey guys, came across this great initiative, nice misaal (example) for all of us.” The video shows how Nagi has done the work with the help artists, locals, and residents. He has also trained some of the younger volunteers from art colleges in painting workshops and has ended up employing 25 students to finish the project in less than two months. The aim of ‘Misaal Mumbai’ is to improve the quality of life for poor people living in slums, by providing more hygienic living conditions, beautifying their homes, along with repairs, waterproofing roofs, and improved sanitation.
On the work front, after massive hits like Dangal and Secret Superstar, Aamir Khan is currently busy with “Thugs Of Hindostan”, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in lead roles. Thugs of Hindostan is an epic period action-adventure film, written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. The film is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug, about a Thug called Ameer Ali, whose gang of Thugs posed a serious challenge to the British Empire in India during the early 19th century. The film tells a fictional story set between 1790 and 1805.
The movie is set to be released during Diwali on 7 November 2018.
