So, what is Aamir Khan up to next? We thought it was his cameo in The Secret Superstar, but it seems the actor-filmmaker is neck-deep in his Satyamev Jayate water conservation initiative.

Aamir Khan has been learning Marathi for several years now under the guidance of a tutor and also his friend and Rang De Basanti c-actor Atul Kulkarni. In 2016 on his birthday on March 14, Aamir Khan had quoted the Pasaydaan in his exclusive chat with the media and spoke in Marathi a bit. The first Satyamev Jayate Water Cup was announced last year and is a project of the Paani Foundation, run by Aamir Khan’s wife Kiran Rao, his ex-wife Reena Dutta as also Satyajit Bhatkal, the director of Aamir’s chat show Satyamev Jayate after which the initiative has been named. Bhatkal is the chief executive officer of the Satyamev Jayate project while Reena Dutta is the chief operating officer.
Aamir Khan and his Satyamev Jayate Water Cup works in conjunction with the Maharashtra Government and has help from several industrialists and actors. Aamir Khan and his team has since trained hundreds of people in water conservation in severe drought hit Maharashtra, beginning with just three talukas. We hope Toofan Alaya is something more special rather than just entertainment and leads to more help to society.
