The political will is so strong now that I hope the dream will be fulfilled," Khan told media here during 'Satyamev Jayate Water Cup Awards 2016,' which was held to acclaim water harvesting efforts of various villages.

The event saw the presence of Fadnavis, filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, Aamir's wife Kiran Rao and the team of his's popular TV show 'Satyamev Jayate.'
