Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is facing huge backlash on social media ever since his meeting with the First Lady of Turkey Emine Erdoğan.
Khan who is in Turkey to complete the shot for his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha was received by the first lady at the presidential residence at the Huber Mansion in Istanbul on August 15.
She tweeted, “I had the great pleasure of meeting @aamir_khan, the world-renowned Indian actor, filmmaker, and director, in Istanbul. I was happy to learn that Aamir decided to wrap up the shooting of his latest movie ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ in different parts of Turkey. I look forward to it!”
According to reports, Khan talked to Erdoğan regarding the social responsibility projects he is associated with.
“Mr Khan stated that he would complete the shooting of his latest film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, which couldn’t be completed in India due to COVID-19, in Turkey, and invited First Lady Erdogan to the film set,” a press release read.
However, things didn’t go down well with netizens, as earlier this year Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, during his visit to Islamabad, Pakistan had compared the situation in Kashmir with the Gallipoli campaign of the World War II.
However, India’s Ambassador to Turkey tweeted, “That special moment – First Lady H.E. @EmineErdogan receives India’s Cultural Ambassador and one of our finest exponents of meaningful cinema @aamir_khan on a location scouting trip to Turkey for his latest film #LaalSinghChhadha”
However, netizens called out Khan for his meeting.
