At the event, Aamir, 52, said he found out that he has swine flu after blood tests and now won't be attending any events for at least a week. "As a result of the infection they (Aamir and Kiran) were not able to be present for the most important day of Paani Foundation, the annual prize distribution," the source added.

Aamir Khan gave confirmation about the news at Paani Foundation's Satyamev Jayate Water Cup Awards, which was the event that Aamir was unable to attend. The actor shared the announcement via a video message.

"I could not come because, both me and Kiran have been detected positive for swine flu. And have been asked to stay inside a room for seven days," said Aamir according to a DNA report.
