Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan maintains he is an "agriculturist by birth in the true definition of the word".

Aamir has even bought an agricultural land in the scenic Maval Taluka of Pune district in Maharashtra.



But now after mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan , Aamir is under scanner for his land purchase with Maharashtra government on Tuesday ordering an inquiry into the allegation that he had got the land by claiming to be a farmer.

Revenue Minister Narayan Rane ordered the inquiry by the Pune District Collector into Aamir's purchase of agricultural land in the scenic Maval Taluka of Pune district.

Rane said every Indian citizen has a right to purchase agricultural land provided that he has documents to claim that he is a farmer by profession but added that he did not have any specific information or details about this (Aamir's) case.

The minister warned the administration would take strict action if anyone is found to have used fake documents to buy agricultural land.

Aamir said in a statement that "I am an actor and artist by profession, but by birth I am an agriculturist in the true definition of the word. I come from an agricultural family".

"My father, along with his brothers and sisters, owns agricultural property in the form of mango orchards in Shahbaad, Uttar Pradesh. By virtue of being the son of a Bonafide agriculturist, I am also an agriculturist. Before firming up the idea of purchasing landed property, I conducted the due diligence," Aamir said.

Bachchan has also bought agriculture land in Maval claiming to be a farmer and the matter is being looked into by the Pune district authorities.

A UP court recently ruled that Bachchan is not a farmer and struck down allotment of farmland to him in Barabanki.

Bachchan has challenged the order in Allahabad High Court.
