Aamir Khan was recently present at the Satyamev Jayate Water Cup Awards 2016, which were held for awarding water harvesting efforts of various villages. At the event, Aamir spoke about his plans to make Maharashtra a drought free state in the next five years. Aamir, his wife Kiran Rao, along with the team of his popular TV show Satyamev Jayate, have formed Paani Foundation, which works in association with the state government to find ways to end water scarcity. The competition was held from April 20 to June 5 and villages were judged by the amount of water storage they created through water harvesting methods. Aamir hailed the efforts of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to make the state drought-free.

"It is our dream to make Maharashtra drought-free in five years. And it is our good fortune that Maharashtra got a Chief Minister who has pledged to solve the water crisis. His political will is really strong," Aamir said.

Fadnavis said people's participation was of utmost importance for an initiative like this, and hailed Aamir and his team for their efforts. "Now our 'yug dharam' is to end drought. That is our aim...A big movement of water conservation has started. I thank Aamir. He is a perfectionist not only in reel but even in real life," he said. "It is inspiring to see (the result). We wanted to see if people will do this on their own because we are giving them only knowledge and training. Ultimately everything else they have to put in," Aamir added.
Well, it's definitely great to see Aamir and his efforts to make Maharashtra drought free.
