The little kid’s simple dream was to meet his favourite actor Aamir Khan. A post by Humans of Bombay reciting this particular wish by Nihal, and it went viral. So much that it reached Aamir and he decided to meet his sweetest fan. And the magical story that touched millions will only remain in memories now. Nihal Bitla passed away today, succumbing to the disorder’s adverse effects on health. Nihal was ageing eight times faster than a normal human.
Aamir Khan after meeting with kid, posted on Facebook – “It was lovely meeting you Nihal, along with your father Srinivas and your sister Vaishnavi. The beautiful Ganesh drawing you made has been sent for framing and will be up in my room. I will look at it and remember you everyday. Lots of love. A”. To which an even sweeter reply came from Nihal. He wrote o the social media platform “Thank you Aamir uncle for making my dream come true. Your ‘Taare Zameen Par’ always inspired me to face adverse situations and I was always knew that one day I will meet you.”.
We will always miss the kid with contagious smile who inspired an entire nation to live life to the fullest. And his story will keep inspiring us.
