Taking Paani Foundation to educational institutes, Aamir will be going to colleges and will make an appeal to students by pinning up posters urging students to join the movement. 

“Aamir Khan who has been extensively working for the welfare of small villages in Maharashtra will be making this appeal in Mumbai, Pune, Nashik and Nagpur colleges. The actor will be visiting Symbiosis college in Pune today (April 20) and will interact with students over a question and answer session, spreading awareness about the social initiative,” says a source. 

“The actor who has been busy shooting for his upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan is taking some time off, along with wife Kiran Rao for the foundation and will be dedicating two months entirely to look into the work personally.”  

Aamir has been associated with Paani foundation for the past three years and has helped almost 1/4th of Maharashtra to conserve and utilise water. Paani Foundation is a not-for-profit company set up in 2016 by the team of the TV series Satyamev Jayate to fight drought in rural Maharashtra. 

Aamir’s initiative of Paani foundation’s Satyameva Jayate Water Cup has grown to achieve what they were set out to in the last three years. In 2018, over 9000 villages from 75 talukas will be competing for the Water Cup.
