Aamir Khan FINALLY breaks his silence on quitting social media; watch viral video
A day after his birthday (March 15), superstar Aamir Khan gave a little shocker to his fans by announcing his exit from all social media platforms. He took to Twitter and Instagram to share the news and also thanked everyone for all the love and support he has got over the years.
After he made the announcement of quitting all the social media platforms, Aamir in a recent interaction with paparazzi revealed the reason behind his decision.
Aamir was spotted in Mumbai on Tuesday at the screening of the film Koi Jaane Na. In a viral video shared by paparazzi Viral Bhayani, the actor told reporters, “Aap log apni theories mat lagaiye.” The Thugs of Hindostan actor said that he wasn’t very active on social media anyway and now, would only communicate with his fans through the media.
On being asked if he was bidding goodbye to his fans, Aamir added, “Alvida nahi, main to idhar hi hu, kahi ja nahi raha hu, isse pahle bhi to communicate karte hi they. Abhi isme media ka role zyada bhadh gya hai kyunki ab main media ke through hi apne audience se baat kar paunga. Aapka to khush hona chahiye, mujhe pura bharosa hai aap pe (I am not going anywhere, we used to communicate before as well. Now there is increased role for the media because I will communicate with my audience through media only. You should be happy, I have full faith in you).”
