After a day flooded with wishes and posts on the occasion of his birthday, Aamir Khan, on Monday, announced that he would be quitting social media to focus more on his work and as always, keep himself dedicated to his art. Though this comes as an unlikely announcement, it is not the first time that Aamir has kept all distractions aside to focus on his work.
Bidding goodbye to the social media world, Aamir took to his handle and thanked his fans for their constant support and love. He wrote, “Hey guys, thank you so much for all the love and warmth on my birthday. My heart is full. In other news, this is going to be my last post on social media. Considering that I am SO active anyway.”
Aamir further added, “I have decided to drop the pretence. We will continue to communicate as we did before. In addition, AKP has created its official channel! So future updates on me and my films can be found there. Here’s the official handle! @akppl_official. Lots of love, always. a.”

Aamir posted a similar message on his official Twitter account as well. Interestingly, Aamir had joined Instagram exactly three years ago. In 2018, Aamir had made his Instagram debut on his birthday by sharing a picture of his mother which broke the internet. Similarly, Aamir has quit Twitter after 11 years as well.
For the uninformed, ‘Mr. Perfectionist’ of Bollywood had recently also decided to turn off his phone till the release of his upcoming film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ opposite Kareena Kapoor Khan. The decision to forgo his phone was taken to ensure that his work doesn’t get affected by the constant pinging of his device while on set which would be distracting.
On the work front, the actor is back with his fourth special song titled ‘Harr Funn Maula’ with Elli AvrRam.
