The actor also wrote to the Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh pleading him to support the people’s movement. “…with great hope and all humility that I request you to pay heed to the voice of Mr Anna Hazare. I would like to submit to you that the nation is slowly but surely collecting behind Mr Hazare in appreciation for what he is fighting for,” Aamir wrote to the PM.
