Bollywood actors Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan share a great bond and have impressed their fans many times with their chemistry on screen. The duo have worked together in films like, ‘3 idiots’ and ‘Talaash’.
Did you know that Aamir had once gifted a Chanderi saree from Madhya Pradesh worth Rs 25, 000 to Kareena? Yes, you read that right! In 2009, Aamir had asked the actress to come to MP’s Chanderi and the actress had to travel for hours by road to reach the place.
During the visit, Aamir had gifted a saree worth Rs 25,000 to Kareena from the handloom weavers they had visited.
Back then, talking about Aamir's sweet gesture, Kareena had told a news portal that,
"It has been chaotic and I am so exhausted. When I first came to MP, I was scared as no one had told me where we were going. I was only told that we have to meet Aamir. I only met him after travelling for seven hours. He took me to Chanderi and I didn’t even know that the place existed."
She further elaborated saying,
“Aamir said that I am a style icon and I should promote these handloom industries. The forefathers of these workers used to work for royal families and make their costumes. We actually went to these homes and saw the way they live. They stay in one room and work for 10-12 hours every day and only take home about Rs 50 every day, while the designers take their work and sell it for Rs 30-40,000. They do not even have electricity in their homes. We also had dinner with them."
The actors are reuniting on the silver screen in ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ ,which is slated to hit the theatres on April 14, 2022. The film also features Mona Singh, Naga Chaitanya and others in key roles.
