Aamir Khan is known for being a talented and sensitive actor who takes his work very seriously. The 50-year-old superstar, who is also the host of the talk show Satyamev Jayate (which will not be airing this year), is also famed for his tendency to shed tears both on-screen as well as off-screen, when something affects him deeply.
As evidence, we offer the following two videos:
Aamir Khan crying at the launch of the third season of 'Satyamev Jayate'
Aamir Khan responding emotionally to 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan'
On Monday, Twitter users turned the superstar's propensity to wear his heart on his sleeve into a meme, after it was reported by Absolute India that the upcoming rom-com Katti Batti left him in tears.

Some tried to come up with an explanation.

And die-hard fans were not amused at people making jokes at the expense of Bollywood's 'Mr Perfectionist'.
Stupid people are making fun of Aamir Khan because he's a man with a big heart and cries whenever he sees things like poverty and hunger!!
