Nepal tragedy leaves Aamir shaken
A week after Nepal faced a 7.9-magnitude earthquake, the toll has crossed the 7,000 mark and made many heartbroken, including Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan.
The Taare Zameen Par star, 50, has shown concern over the rising deaths in the quake-hit country and asked his followers on Twitter to “help the affected children” by donating.
“I visited Nepal recently, and my heart breaks with the rising death toll. Please lets help the affected children ,” Aamir, who took up the role of social crusader with his TV show Satyamev Jayate, tweeted on Sunday. The show has talked about a gamut of issues from raising awareness about issues like medical malpractice, gender discrimination, dowry deaths, malnutrition, disability, to many others and the actor has always been a front runner when it comes to social issues.
The powerful April 25 earthquake has shaken much of Nepal, leaving over 7,000 people dead, thousands injured and millions displaced in the Himalayan nation.
