Last week, Aamir Khan received a kind and sweet emotional message from Progeria patient praising his film Taare Zameen Par and an appeal to meet him.
Aamir in reply showed a sweet gesture and posted a message to this teenager in response, asking him his name and promising to meet him.
We have come across that this little fan of Aamir’s is actually a 14-year-old boy from Mumbai. He has been identified as Nihal Bitla, who suffers from Hutchinson Gilford Progeria. It is a rare, fatal genetic condition that accelerates ageing.
Khurki found an inspirational journey of Nihal along with the global search for children with Progeria by the Progeria Research Foundation. A documentary is being shot on Nihal’s life:
Nihal you are truly an inspiration and we hope Aamir Khan fulfills his promise of meeting you soon which eventually will raise awareness and will help other kids suffering from Progeria in India.
