Aamir Khan travelled to Jammu & Kashmir on February 9 to shoot an ad campaign for Incredible India -- a Government of India initiative to boost tourism.

Aamir, who's also done some television commercials as the brand ambassador of the initiative, shot for the new ad in the Suraf Rao village of north Kashmir, Ganderbal district, immediately after his arrival.

The actor did a recce for his upcoming film too, if rumours are to be believed.
