The Indian government on Wednesday brushed off reports stating Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has signed a Rs 200-crore deal with
the Ministry of Women and Child Development that has put the department on hold.
"Attention of the Ministry of Women and Child Development has been drawn to a recent article in the press regarding the IEC campaign
against malnutrition purportedly stating 'Shri Aamir Khan puts the Government on hold'. The contents of the above article are factually
incorrect and are a misrepresentation," said the ministry in a Press Note on Wednesday.
"It is clarified that Shri Aamir Khan who is a valued personality and a key figure in this campaign against malnutrition has been providing
his services without charging any money from Government of India for the above noble cause. The efforts made by him are laudable and
highly appreciated," the ministry said.
According to reports, Aamir has charged Rs 200 crore for producing short films on malnutrition as part of the government campaign
which has compelled the ministry to delay the launch of 50 documentaries.
