Aamir Khan, who has voiced his concerns over various social issues plaguing the country, had recently posted a video on Twitter asking people to come out in support of flood victims in both Assam and Gujarat.

The 52-year-old 'Dangal' star said, "Friends, many areas of Assam and Gujarat have been affected by heavy floods. And, our brothers and sisters there are facing a lot of difficulties. Lots of lives have also been lost and there has been a huge financial loss too. We are helpless in front of nature but we can help those staying there."
He appealed his fans to help people staying in Assam and Gujarat by contributing to the Chief Minister's Relief Fund.

The Centre has already announced an ex-gratia of Rs 2 lakh each under the Prime Minister's National Relief Fund for the next of kin of people killed and Rs 50,000 to seriously injured persons in the recent flood in Assam.
