On May 15, 2010 Aamir posted the following message on his page “Visited my dietician today. You don’t want to know what he said to me. I certainly don’t want anyone to know. I really need to get back into shape. Enough partying and revelling in the success of 3I. So Monday onwards back to my diet and workout. Support guys, I need your support and encouragement.” And in came hundreds of messages of love and encouragement that eventually inspired a joint effort towards looking good and feeling healthy. The motivated Aamir finally wrote “Ok this fun. Many of you want to know how we can do this. I can’t post more than a certain number of characters here So for those of you who want to join me, in the next 20 mins I will post a plan on my site www.aamirkhan.com, check it out and really go for it. It will be great motivation for me too.”
