Twitter users slam Aamir Khan for meeting Turkish First Lady Emine Erdogan on Laal Singh Chaddha shoot

Amid global pandemic, Aamir Khan and his Laal Singh Chaddha crew flew to Turkey to begin their 40-days scheduled shoot. The images of him meeting with the fans in Turkey and now, Turkish First Lady Emine Erdogan on an official visit in Istanbul has gone viral on social media. 

The image of Mr. Perfectionist with the First Lady of Turkey has attracted a lot of criticism on Twitter. Social media users are quick to point out the strained ties between India and Turkey, particularly after Article 3370 was scrapped in Kashmir last year.  

Emine shared the photos on Twitter with the caption: “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!” 

Twitter users are unhappy with the fact that Aamir Khan is attending an official meeting with the First Lady of Turkey when the relationship between the two countries (India and Turkey) is depleting. Also, reportedly, a Turkish foreign minister spokesperson recently commented negatively on the removal of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. He said the abrogation of Article 370 has not brought peace and stability in Kashmir.  

Here are some of the reactions to Aamir’s meet with the Turkish First Lady.
