I will not align with any political party, there is no threat to me.
Mumbai: Aamir Khan said on wednesday that he doesn’t support any political party and would not align with any of them at an event related to his TV show ‘Satyamev Jayate’.
“I want to be away from politics. I want to align with issues that are important. I support a thought and not a party. I want to support an issue irrespective of any political party. I would not wish to align with any party,” Aamir told.
Aamir claimed that he cried during the show, while talking about a touching incident of forgiveness.
“I felt I cried too much on the show. I am an emotional person. I cry when I hear heartbreaking stories. There are times when I cried and the channel people cut that part as 15 minutes of crying is too much, since there are other important issues to talk about,” he said.
Aamir said that he visited Gaya in Bihar yesterday to announce the second season of the ‘Satyamev Jayate’ TV show, from the very spot where one Dashrath Manjhi broke a mountain and made a road for villagers.
“This is an inspiration to all the people who wish to do something. I salute his courage and determination,” Aamir said.
The second season of the show has a new feature where people may vote for their opinions on any issue which they wish to follow.
“We have introduced a vote for change campaign where people can vote and give their opinion on any issue. We plan to give these (poll) details to the government,” he said.
It has also been decided to air the second season of the show in three slots, so that people could absorb the issue, he said.
Incidentally, Aamir is also one among the many people who sang the title track of ‘Satyamev Jayate 2′.
There is no threat to me, says Aamir
Aamir Khan has rubbished reports of threat to his life in the wake of sensitives issues taken up by him during the first season of his television show ‘Satyamev Jayate’.
After Aamir touched upon sensitive topics like female foeticide, medical malpractices and honour killing in ‘Satyamev Jayate’, he had apparently received several threats to stop highlighting such cases.
There were reports that Aamir had ordered a bullet proof car as some of the episodes of ‘Satyamev Jayate 2′ may throw light on governance and issues related to Lok Sabha elections 2014.
“I have not got any threats. I don’t fear… threats. Do not go with the rumours. There is no threat to me,” the actor said.
The show anchored by Aamir, 48, will be aired on television from March 2.
“We think ourselves as communicators, our responsibility is to talk about an issue, present the data and talk about the law. I want people to join… engage in the movement and stand for the right things. Personally, I would like to endorse women empowerment,” he said.
