After leaving Varanasi, he roamed around for two days in Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh. Once there, he heard that the place famous for weavers. A couple of years back, Khan had met an NGO, which had spoken about the dying art and the plight of weavers.
To highlight their plight, Khan called actress Kareena Kapoor to join him there. Kapoor, who acts alongside him in 3 Idiots, promptly joined him in Chanderi and the two weaved a sari together to draw attention to the cause. The sari weaved by the two will go for auction through an NGO and the money collected will go for the development of the village.
The sari has the names of both the stars on it. Aamir also bought a few saris for his wife Kiran and gifted one —priced at Rs 25,000 — to Kareena as well.
