MUMBAI: Superstar Aamir Khan who has been having a golden run at the box office has hit a roadblock. He and his wife Kiran Rao have contracted swine flu.
Both of them are being treated at their residence in Mumbai.
It was revealed by the actor through video-conferencing during the ‘Satyamev Jayate Water Cup 2017’ event organised this evening in Pune by his NGO Paani Foundation.
The 52-year-old actor was scheduled to attend the event, but had to skip it due to the infection.
Aamir Khan said, “It’s a very happy occasion. But both I and Kiran are sad. After working hard so much on this project for a year, when the time came to celebrate with you all, we have fallen sick. The disease that we have contracted is H1N1, which spreads very fast, if we come in contact with people. It is popularly known as swine flu. As a result, we have to be in this house for the next one week and it’s also the reason why we couldn’t come there.”
