Here's what your favourite Bollywood celebrities are tweeting.

Aamir Khan, who has been championing the cause of social issues, met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on June 23 in Delhi to discuss the problems which he highlights in his television show Satyamev Jayate.

The 49-year-old actor later said the Prime Minister assured him that he would look into the issues raised by him.

'Just came out of my meeting with Honorable Prime Minister of India Shree Narendra Modiji. Was very kind of him to spare his valuable time. Shared with him the overwhelming support that we got from people across the country through 'Vote for Change' campaign on SMJ (Satyamev Jayate) on the various issues that we tackled in our show. He has assured me that he will look into all the matters,' Aamir said in a series of tweets later.

The Vote for Change episode, which was aired in the run up to the last Lok Sabha elections, focused on criminalisation of politics in India while urging the voters to cast their votes to make a difference.

The Prime Minister's Office described the meeting in Modi's office in South Block as a 'courtesy call.'

Looks like the actor is keen on a patch-up.
