Aamir Khan to meet Rajasthan Chief Minister on Wednesday
Aamir Khan plans to get in touch with Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday, May 9 and discuss the issue of female foeticide at length. The actor has already raised this problem on the first episode of his show Satyamev Jayate and expressed his concern over it.
