Aamir Khan: One of 100 Influential People in the World

One of our fave Bollywood stars, Aamir Khan has been described as a pioneer. Khan has been recognized for his contribution to raising awareness of social issues in India such as female foeticide and child abuse through his popular TV series Satyamev Jayate. He is featured on the cover of Time Magazine as one of 100 most influential people in the world.

"Satyamev Jayate was not intended to provide solutions but to ask hard questions, the kind society is often reluctant to address. By showing the courage to ask those questions, Aamir has started a movement that will help change the world in which Indians live. Jai ho!!"--A.R Rahman

He has been instrumental in the passing of a child protection bill by the Indian Parliament to prevent the sexual exploitation of children. He also recently met British Prime Minister David Cameron to discuss the matter of gender inequality in India. Jai ho indeed!
