Mumbai: Actor Aamir Khan stood by his word as he had promised Shanno, a female cab driver and a victim of domestic violence, that whenever he visited Delhi, he would hire her vehicle, and that is exactly what he did.

On June 21, Aamir arrived in Delhi for two days to present his research on medical malpractices to the Parliament, when he hired a cab from Sakha, the agency that Shanno works with. Incidentally, the agency, Sakha, also helps victims of domestic violence.

For the two days that Aamir was in Delhi, he made it a point to travel all around the city in Shanno's cab. Meenu Vadera, who runs Sakha, says, "Aamir kept his word. He used our service. On a recent episode of his popular TV show Satyamev Jayate which focused on domestic violence, Aamir had promised Shanno that whenever he visited Delhi next, he would hire her vehicle.
