Turkey President Erdogan had:
* Poked his nose in Kashmir issue
* Lied that Hindus kill M*slims in India
But now Bollywood’s Aamir Khan met Erdogan’s wife & praised like anything
Very soon Aamir’s film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ will be released
Hope you know what to do then!

Dear Hindus, if this project takes off, Aamir will definitely twist entire history of Mahabharata Where Dharma will be mocked, Adharma will be glorified.
