Alongside three images with the Bollywood star, the Turkish first lady also took it to Twitter to confirm the news. Additionally, she confirmed that the shooting of Khan’s upcoming movie is soon to wrap up in different parts of Turkey. However, Netizens are unhappy with the meeting due to the deepening divide between India and Turkey.

According to the official website of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, Emine received the actor at the presidential residence at the Huber Mansion in Istanbul on Saturday, India’s 74th Independence Day.

During the meeting, the 55-year-old actor Aamir Khan apparently, briefed her about his social responsibility projects to Emine Erdogan. As per the statement on the website, the Turkish first lady congratulated him for addressing social issues in his films.

Some have also begun calling for a boycott of Aamir’s upcoming movie. The release of Laal Singh Chaddha recently postponed to Christmas 2021. Moreover, the film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, and Tamil star Vijay Sethupathi. The movie, which is an official remake of Tom Hanks’ 1994 feature “Forrest Gump”, was previously scheduled to hit the theatres on December 25 this year. The production of the film is yet to be finished.

The PK actor is being badly trolled on social media and received a lot of negative comments. Fans have now decided to dislike the trailer of the film when it releases as they did for Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur’s Sadak 2‘s trailer.

In February, things between India and Turkey had been going quite well. However, Turkish President Recap Tayyip Erdogan then openly criticized India after the clash between the anti-and pro-CAA protestors in New Dehli in February. Subsequent to that, Erdogan, who is a devout Muslim, also backed Pakistan on Kashmir. This happened after India revoked Article 370, which has been a sensitive issue between the two nations.
