Why will Aamir Khan not join politics?

The Dhoom:3  actor does not think, that it is necessary to be in politics to do nation-building

Aamir Khan, Bollywood’s hugely popular actor-producer says that he can fulfil his duties towards the society  as an entertainer with great ease. “I feel that wherever I am, that is my platform and I am happy there. I can bring a lot of change in society through the medium I work in. I feel my communication skills, my storytelling capabilities are my strengths. I can touch people’s hearts, and I can use these to reach the people. It is an important part of nation-building,” added the 48-year-old who will be next seen in Dhoom:3.

He is the face of Incredible India campaign, a UNICEF ambassador to promote child nutrition and he has hosted Satyamev Jayate, but is not looking at politics at all. “I have no intention to enter politics. I want to use the medium of filmmaking and entertainment to contribute to the society and nation-building,” Aamir said at an evemt.

“Every person should be politically conscious and at least have a basic understanding of social issues because only then they will we be able to make the informed choices. So, yes, I am a political person according to that. But I have no interest in politics,” he added. In the past, Aamir raised an issue as sensitive as dyslexia in his directorial debut Taare Zameen Par, which spun entertainment and education deftly. His TV show Satyamev Jayate presented startling facts about issues like dowry and female infanticide.
