Several right wing Facebook pages are now sharing a photo of the duo claiming Khan has eloped with Shikhare.

A claim in Hindi translates to the following: "Every time Aamir Khan used to get scared in India, it was because of this man. Amir Khan, who had hired a Hindu servant to humiliate the Hindus, his daughter Ira Khan took his Hindu servant and got married."

(In Hindi: "जो हर बार आमिर खान को भारत में डर लगता था, वो इसी इन्सान के वजह से लगता था. अमीर खान जो हिन्दुओं को नीचा दिखाने हिन्दु नौकर रखा था उसकी बेटी इरा खान अपने हिन्दु नौकर को ले कर शादी कर ली.")
