Bilaspur: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has been offered the role of the brand ambassador of Chhattisgarh to promote paddy production in the state.
"Film star Aamir Khan will be the brand ambassador of Chhattisgarh by March if everything goes well," state agriculture minister Chandrashekhar Sahu told reporters here today.
"It would be like Amitabh Bachchan, who has been endorsing Gujarat tourism. Aamir will promote paddy production in Chhattisgarh, where the main occupation of the people is agriculture. A dialogue is underway with Aamir Khan and very soon he will take a final decision," Sahu said.
Commenting on the opposition's move over the alleged sexual assault on minor inmates in a government-run residential school in Kanker, Sahu said that the Congress should not politicise the matter.
He also said that very soon he will organise a function at Rajim to honour the girls of his constituency and observe a "girl safety day".
