Aamir Khan – first Bollywood hero on Time Magazine cover?

Aamir Khan has been dealing with various social issues on his TV show Satyamev Jayate, and his efforts have landed him on the cover of this prestigious weekly magazine

After Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Parveen Babi, it’s Aamir Khan from Bollywood who is topic of discussion on Time Magazine. The contribution Khan has made through his TV show Satyamev Jayate and the issues he has spoken about is what the cover story entails. The cover reads – ‘He’s breaking the Bollywood mold by tackling India’s social evils. Can one actor change a nation?’

Well, we don’t know if he can change the nation but we must say that Aamir is getting noticed in a big way. As he shares the achievement of being on the cover of TM with famous personalities like Rajiv Gandhi, Sachin Tendulkar, Sania Mirza and Dr Manmohan Singh, we are sure it’s a moment of pride for the Dhoom:3 actor. Khan’s grave expression is captured beautifully on the magazine and it complements the cover story perfectly.

Khan may or may not come up with a season 2 of Satyamev Jayate, but his quest for creating awareness about the stumbling blocks gripping India is definitely being appreciated worldwide. Sachin was the last Indian to feature on the cover of TM, and Khan makes sure he carries on the tradition. We wish the actor best of luck!

    after doing the hugely successful Taare Zameen Par, wherein he showed his softer side, the thespian was destined to go “social!”

    Deboshree, with such a little knowledge, you are writing on a reputed online site? You should change the title now to hide your lacking. Otherwise it’ll degrade you as a journalist(!).
    SRK is the Bollywood hero who was featured on the cover of Time Magazine at 2004. How rubbish you are!

    • shaf

      srk is not hero

  • Sara

    What the heck !!!!!!!!!! A totally baseless report …… In 2004 it was Shahrukh who graced the covers of Time magazine as the first Bollywood Actor !!!!!
    Shouldn’t you be getting your facts right before landing up with such illogical headlines !

      SRK was on the cover of an special issue of TIME’s ‘asian edition’that was covering top 20 asian heroes. Sure it is an achievement but it is not as prestigious as being on the cover of ‘The’ TIME magazine. It is like the difference between filmfare and Oscars.
