After Nana Patekar, Aamir Khan adopts 2 drought-hit villages of Maharashtra
After Nana Patekar and Akshay Kumar, another Bollywood A-lister has lent his support to drought-hit villages of Maharashtra.
Earlier, Nana Patekar’s NGO – NAAM foundation had adopted villages in a bid to make them self sufficient and tanker-free. Airlift actor Akshay Kumar also lent his support by donating Rs. 50 lakh towards the Chief Minister’s Jalyukt Shivar Abhiyaan.
Joining hands with the government this time is megastar Aamir Khan, who has decided to adopt two of the worst drought-affected villages of the state.
The Lagaan actor, who is currently touring the drought-hit areas of Maharashtra to teach villagers the technique on water conservation, has adopted Tal and Koregaon villages.
Recently, along with CM Devendra Fadnavis, Aamir also launched Satyamev Jayate Water Cup – a water management and decentralisation contest among the villages of Maharashtra.
Earlier, Aamir had also adopted a village in Bhuj, Gujarat that was devastated by earthquake in the year 2001.
