On the occasion of Labour Day, Alia Bhatt along with Aamir Khan visits Marathwada, a village in Maharashtra in offering shramdaan for Paani Foundation.
The actress is seen carries a shovel in her hands and digging up the arid land.
Yesterday, Alia announced her involvement for the third edition of the event and tweeted, “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 #PaaniFoundation.”
In 2016, Aamir took up the issue of Maharashtra drought in his TV show, Satyamev Jayate. So he started a campaign with the show’s director Satyajit Bhatkal, aiming to help 90% of the drought-affected areas in the state.
Aamir started shramdaan on May 1, 2016, asking city dwellers and villagers to come to villages and help the rural population.
Alia was joined by several leading stars of the Marathi film industry like Sai Tamhankar, Jitendra Joshi, Jyoti Subhash, Girish Kulkarni, Amey Wagh and Amruta Subhash.
On a professional front, Aamir will be seen in Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Thugs of Hindustan. While, Alia will be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi.
