Being part of TV important for me: Aamir Khan
Bollywood star Aamir Khan, who chooses to give a miss to film award functions, decided to turn up for the Star Parivaar Awards event here recently. The host of Satyamev Jayate said the small screen medium is vital to him.

He is currently working on the third season of Satyamev Jayate, via which he raises important social issues of the country.
‘We are currently working on the third season of Satyamev Jayate. We are researching on the topics and it is going good,’ the 48-year-old said.

The actor also recently met Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the problems which he highlights in his TV programme Satyamev Jayate. ‘Shared with him the overwhelming support that we got from people across the country through “Vote for Change” campaign on SMJ (Satyamev Jayate) on the various issues that we tackled in our show. He has assured me that he will look into all the matters,’ Aamir said.
