New Delhi, Jan 11: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan has been removed as the ambassador of Road Safety campaign in India, media report suggested.
Aamir, who recently has been removed from Incredible India campaign, reportedly has been facing axe over his statement on growing intolerance in the country.

Road Transport and Highways minister Nitin Gadkari reportedly had met Aamir after watching an episode of Satyamev Jayate, a TV reality show which is hosted by the actor.
