Aamir khan, one of the responsible Super stars in Hindi Cinema, has considerable fan following. He is known to make movies which carry socially relevant messages. Be it about parents managing a Dyslexic child, Indians' approach to education or promoting good values among the generation x, y and Z etc, he really can sway the masses.
More on the Star's Socially Responsible Assignments...
His movie about Dyslexic Children and their inability to cope with the Indian Education system was wonderfully portrayed in his Movie - "Taare Zameen Par". Imagine the impact this movie made, that this super star was made the brand ambassador for The Times of India’s Teach India Initiative. He seems quite dedicated to the Project. I say this because, US Secretary of State - Hillary Clinton, during her visit to India, took time out to meet Aamir Khan. Given the number of Autistic and Dyslexic children being given special care in the United states, her gesture to meet this star is understandable.
Another very important aspect of this star making using of his Star power is his work in Videos for Incredible India! A series of videos, aptly called "Athithi devo bhava!" - educating people about protecting our national monuments and being more responsible as citizens of India. A must see. Here are two I liked the most.
I hope his influence on population will lead to a more tolerable, habitable India. I have high hopes for the future citizens. (We, the current voting population, are a complete disappointment. I hope we wake up soon!)
