An image of Bollywood actor Amir Khan with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is getting viral on social media with a claim that they both met recently. 

A Facebook user Bhartiya Rakesh Singh shared the picture with a caption, “The jihadi President of Turkey who opposed India for the removal of section 370 in UNO… the one who supports Pakistan openly and just visited Pakistan two days ago…Aamir Khan, who feels scared in India, has gone to meet this enemy.” And we Hindus will go to watch his movies .. and he will give money they earn from us to Jihadis to do the genocide of Hindus because he also needs Gazwa-e-Hind !!

Our Investigation

In the investigation, we found that the viral picture of Amir khan and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is an old image from October 2017 when Amir was promoting his film 'Secret Superstar' and during this time he went to Turkey.

After doing reverse research of the image we found an article of The Times Headline published on October 8, 2017, with a headline ‘Indian actor Amir Khan meets Turkish President Erdogan’.

According to the article, Indian superstar Amir Khan met Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, where the Bollywood star is promoting his upcoming movie “Secret Super Star”. The versatile actor was received by Erdogan at the Presidential Complex in the Turkish capital Ankara. He also sang a song from his movie “Dangal” during the meeting.

Fact

The picture of actor Aamir Khan with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is actually an old picture from October 2017. There is no media report of Aamir Khan meeting Turkish president after the abrogation of Article 370 in Kashmir.
