Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao have contracted swine flu, and both of them are being treated at their residence in Mumbai.

The actor, through video-conferencing during the Satyamev Jayate Water Cup 2017 event organised on Sunday evening in Pune by his NGO Paani Foundation, revealed that he has been diagnosed with swine flu.

The 52-year-old actor was scheduled to attend the event, but had to skip it due to the infection.

"We really wanted to attend the ceremony, but recently, after a test, I was diagnosed with H1N1, that is swine flu... I have been asked to take rest and cannot go and attend any public function so I am skipping the event so that others do not contract it," Aamir told the audience.

His wife Kiran Rao, co founder of Paani Foundation, was seen sitting next to him during his video address.

Aamir Khan is working on Thugs Of Hindostan, co-starring Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif. It is directed by his Dhoom: 3 director Vijay Krishna Acharya.
