However, Aamir’s meeting the first lady didn’t go well with netizens who seemed to be unhappy with the actor amid the strained ties between India and Turkey.
After Article 370 was scrapped in Kashmir last year, the relationship between Turkey and India had deteriorated.

Khan is currently in Turkey to complete the remaining half of his film Laal Singh Chaddha, a remake of the 1994 US comedy-drama starring Tom Hanks, in Turkey as India has barred film shoots due to the coronavirus outbreak.
In March, the Punjab schedule of Laal Singh Chaddha was cut short abruptly due to the pandemic. The shoot will now resume after nearly five months.
Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan in the lead role and is the official Hindi remake of the film Forrest Gump.
This isn’t the first time that Khan has visited Turkey. In 2017, the Turkish government had extended him an invitation to promote his film Superstar in the country.
