Aamir Khan is undoubtedly one of the few names that come to mind when they say Bollywood cinema… While surfing the internet recently, we came across a post about him. The post says that Aamir Khan hid 15,000 rupees in bags filled with flour and distributed it to poor people. It’s hard to understand why he made such an enigmatic game instead of donating money directly to those in need. However, people say that this post is real, “You are great, Aamir Khan!” They even accepted it with sentences like this…

The description added to the page’s post is as follows:

Aamir Khan donated bags of 1kg flour to the people in need. Since it’s just 1kg, only the poorest person came to take it. But he had hidden 15000 Rupees($200) inside of them so the money went to those who really needed it.

Is this post real or is it just a story someone made up to get hits? We were curious and magnified this claim.
