Aamir Khan surprises fans by flying 'economy class'
Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is making headlines for a pretty heartening reason.
While people like singer Mika Singh are really out there booking an entire first class cabin for himself, the 54-year-old actor was seen traveling in a flight in economy class, much to the surprise of his fellow passengers.
Read on to find out about what the actor has been up to.
Fans lauded Khan on social media for his humility
The video, which was posted by paparazzi Instagram account 'viralbhayani', has several comments lauding Khan for his humility.
"It's actual class of simplicity," wrote one Instagram user. "Amir bhai masha allah u are real hero economy class," commented another.
Well, since Khan was in an IndiGo aircraft, which has class-less cabins, he technically wasn't flying economy, he was just not flying business class.

Khan is currently working on a 'Forrest Gump' remake
Khan will next be seen in the film Laal Singh Chaddha, which is a remake of the Hollywood film Forrest Gump, where he will play the role of Laal Singh.
Speaking about the film, Khan told reporters, "It is being made by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Aamir Khan Productions together."
"It's a feel-good film. It is a film for the whole family," he added.
'Forrest Gump' is a 1994 American comedy-drama starring Tom Hanks
Forrest Gump is an American comedy-drama film that came out in 1994.
It follows a slow-witted man named Forrest Gump and how he ends up leading a fulfilling life despite others' doubts.
The film is based on a 1986 novel of the same name written by Winston Groom and stars Tom Hanks, Robin Wright, Gary Sinise, Mykelti Williamson, and Sally Field.
Do you know?
Why did Khan say no to business class?
Fans speculated that Khan probably had to fly with IndiGo because of the Jet Airways crisis. But it could be anything like he's probably running low on cash since Thugs of Hindostan flopped or that he's not a classist idiot like the rest of us.
