"We are proud of u @aamir_khan," Kejriwal wrote on his Twitter handle on Wednesday along with a picture of the statement issued by the actor.

Earlier in the day, Khan came out with a statement, saying he is "proud to be an Indian". Khan said, "First, let me state categorically that neither I nor my wife Kiran have any intention of leaving the country. We never did, and nor would we like to in the future."

"India is my country, I love it, I feel fortunate for being born here, and this is where I am staying," said the 50-year-old actor.

Khan at Ramnath Goenka Excellence in Journalism Awards function in Delhi on Monday said he was 'alarmed' by a number of 'incidences' and that his wife had even suggested "leaving" the country.
