Aamir Khan, who was recently considered to be named a national icon to encourage voter turnout, has written to the election commission to say that he’s not endorsing any political party and has asked them to take action to correct the fake reports that he has associated himself with Aam Aadmi Party of Arvind Kejriwal.
“Aamir Khan from day one has made it clear that he will not be endorsing a particular political party. He is not supporting or campaigning for any political party,” a statement on behalf of Aamir said.
An image of Aamir Khan suggesting he will vote for the Aam Aadmi Party has been circulated on social media websites. The ‘poster’ also shows former President A P J Abdul Kalam, cricketer Kapil Dev and actor Mohanlal. It is not clear if the image was released by AAP or is a fake.
