Generally known to be reclusive in public appearances, Bollywood's Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan has reached out to his fans via a video on twitter, urging all his fans and followers to help those impacted by the floods in Gujarat and Assam.

In the short 40-second video, Aamir says, "Several areas of Assam and Gujarat have been affected by heavy floods. Our brothers and sisters who are staying there are facing a lot of difficulties. Many people have lost their lives and there has been a huge loss too. We are helpless in front of the fury of nature but we can help the victims of the floods. I appeal to you to help our brothers and sisters in Assam and Gujarat."

He adds, "Please contribute in the Chief Minister Relief Funds of the two states. I will also contribute and I request you to do the same. Thank you. Jai Hind."

As many as 20 states have been affected by the rains this year, however, Assam and Gujarat are among the worst hit by flood situations. While the government has released relief funds and aid is going in full force, the sheer amount of damage caused by the floods as well as the displacement of thousands of people will make recovery difficult for the local people.
