Fact Check: Amir Khan, Payal Rohatgi did not pass communal remarks

Hyderabad: Social media users are sharing a post in which Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is quoted saying, "stone has no appetite, so Hindus should stop offering milk to idols."

The post also claims that Payal Rohatgi, a former Bigg Boss contestant, responded to Aamir Khan's remarks by saying, "The dead have no cold, so Muslims should stop covering their graves with chadar."

Fact Check:

The claim is false.

NewsMeter searched for credible news. Had Aamir Khan made such remarks, all the leading news organizations in the country would have reported the matter. But, we have not found any reports.

In 2015, some posts claimed that Aamir Khan while hosting `Satyamave Jayate' said poor children can satisfy their hunger with milk that is being wasted on idols.

It is learnt that Aamir Khan did not make these comments in any of the episodes.

Had Payal Rohatgi really made such remarks, all the leading news organizations in the country would have reported the matter. But, we have not come across any report.

Payal Rohatgi has repeatedly criticized Aamir Khan and uploaded videos on her social media pages. Those videos can be viewed here.


Further, we found a video posted on Twitter urging Amir Khan to stop covering graves with chadar and watch out for the poor. And, it is clear that the woman seen in the video is not Payal Rohatgi.



Hence, the claim is false. None of the people mentioned in that post made such comments.

Claim Review:Amir Khan made comments on Hindu idols. Payal responded.
