On April 19, we published an article on our website, mentioning that Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has adopted two villages in drought-hit Maharashtra to lend his support in reducing the water crises. But now, Aamir’s PR team has told that he has not taken over any village, but closely working with his NGO Paani Foundation, to bring relief to over 120 villages in the drought-hit region.
Actor Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao have started Paani Foundation, a not-for-profit company whose main objective is to communicate, impart knowledge and bring about a change in outlook at the grassroots level about water conservation and watershed management. Paani is working with the Maharashtra government towards solving the water crisis in over 120 villages across the state.
The Paani Foundation is primarily engaging people of the villages to come forward together and bring about a change in their village by conserving and proper usage of water.

Maharashtra has been hit by worse drought this time. The situation is worsening every day and this has been going for the last 50 years. Places like Marathwada, Latur are the most affected areas. 2015 saw the highest number of farmer suicides in Maharashtra since 2001.
