"I haven't faced any problems due to demonetisation as I don't have back money at all. I pay taxes. Those who have black money will face problems. I make use of card be it debit or credit card whenever we buy something," Aamir told reporters at an event on Friday evening.

"I know common people are facing problem and I feel sad about it. Our Prime Minister has taken a good initiative and we must support him," he said.

The government is encouraging people to switch to a digital regime and go cashless to rein in corruption.

Ask Aamir if going cashless will help, he says, "I am not an economist. If someone is doing some good work we should help them. I am into films..I can talk about that and not economy."
