Bollywood actor, Aamir Khan who always skips award functions because he finds them pointless, attended a function organized by the International Centre on Non-violent Conflict (ICNC) founded by Peter Ackerman, on Monday, where he was felicitated with the prestigious US award along with Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow for his popular TV show ‘Satyamev Jayate’.
While accepting the award he shared “I have no idea how the work that we started back home would interest somehow outside India. Me and my team are trying to do this show with love, because we feel that we are part of the problem and we are also part of the solution. And we need to find that. We need to question ourselves and look inside as opposed to pointing outside. All my capabilities lie in the field of media and storytelling. So we try to combine our expertise and capabilities in storytelling and television and picking social issues we feel that can make a difference. My main aim is to really work in India and to sensitize people about issues and see that we can find solutions to our own issues back home. I am looking to talking to Indians”
Aamir Khan’s social work has also landed him on the cover of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People In the World, this year. The perfectionist is currently working on the next season of Satyamev Jayate.
