Aamir Khan is currently in Turkey to shoot for his movie Laal Singh Chaddha. The shooting of the film was stalled due to the pandemic and now, the makers have decided to wrap up the shoot in Turkey.

Recently, Aamir met the First Lady of Turkey, Emine Erdogan. According to the official website of Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, Erdogan received the actor at the presidential residence at the Huber Mansion in Istanbul on Saturday, India’s 74th Independence Day.

Emine Erdogan also took to Twitter to share her pictures with Aamir. She tweeted, “I had the great pleasure of meeting @aamir_khan, the world-renowned Indian actor, filmmaker, and director, in Istanbul.
