Aamir Khan has responded to a fake video circulating online, falsely implicating him in endorsing a political party. Denying any political affiliations throughout his career, the actor has taken decisive action, including filing an FIR, to address the misinformation.

In an official statement issued on Tuesday, Aamir's spokesperson clarified, "We are alarmed by the recent viral video alleging that Aamir Khan is promoting a particular political party. He would like to clarify that this is a fake video and totally untrue." Emphasizing Aamir's non-partisan stance, the statement highlighted his commitment to public awareness campaigns for past elections.
