May 1, 2018, though the first day of the new month is better known as Labour Day, Aamir Khan along with Alia Bhatt visited Marathwada to offer their shramdaan in the campaign against dought-less Maharashtra.
Back in 2016, we all know Aamir Khan has raised a voice for the issue of Maharashtra drought in Satyamev Jayate. And, he decided to help 90% of the affected areas of Maharashtra and for that, he started a foundation called as Paani Foundation. Though, Alia joins Aamir's foundation
Aamir describes the program for shramdaan: “When you sign up, you choose the taluka closest to you. When you reach the village, there will be a registration desk where you will be given a spot. The entire area is mapped out with chalk. For instance, if you are told to go to position 7A, there will be a rectangular drawing at that spot where you will dig. We kept 25 April until midnight as the deadline to register because we needed at least four to five days to plan everything.”
Mr. perfectionist knows Maharashtra drought-free is a tough job to do but he said, “Initially, Satya and I were nervous. In my experience, the biggest obstacle you have is your own doubts. It is always your internal self which sometimes makes you feel ‘ki ye nahi hoga’. When we surpassed the self doubt phase, we plunge in. We thought that even if we fail, we would like to give it a shot,” he says.
Yesterday, Highway actress took to Twitter shared her plan for Labour Day and wrote: "Tomorrow that is the 1st of May.. I will be at a village in Marathwada, doing shramadaan with a shovel in my hands. What's your plan?
@paanifoundation @satyamevjayate @aamir_khan."
