I’m a Not a Social Worker but a Creative Person says Aamir Khan at Panchayat Aaj Tak
MUMBAI: Film star Aamir Khan was also a key speaker in Hindi News Channel AajTak’s programme Panchayat Aaj Tak. He said that, ‘Iam not a social worker but a creative person, I’m an Entertainer that’s my primary job, to recreate for peoples. If we want to do something for society then we do not need to become a social worker nor do we need to make an NGO.
Aamir Khan said that he uses his power in the right manner. As he believes that the correct way to Use your power is to use it in the right way for the needy. In an answer to a question he asked, “How many people pay taxes honestly.’’
He said that we do not give tax to the government but to the country.
Those who do not pay taxes to the govt are traitors to the country. Corruption is not prevalent in just MPs, but it is there in every human being. There is no point in changing our MPs every five year, instead we should first introspect and correct ourselves to improve the status of the country.
In a response to a question Aamir said we as filmmaker at times have behaved in an irresponsible way…like the way we have projected our woman in our films. For example Portrayal of Eve teasing has been done very carelessly in our films. Songs like ‘Tu cheez badi hai mast-mast and Khambe jaisi khadi hai’ has done too much of loss for the industry and I’m quite ashamed of it.
Reacting on his controversial PK movie poster Aamir said ” this picture tells the whole story. It is the art of our film. The poster is not made to create sensation. Those who did not like the poster, I’d respect their feelings also. When people would see the movie then only they they will understand that What was the reason behind the origin of this poster. The truth is that we are all born naked.’
In response to questions on Season 3 of Satyameva Jayate Aamir informed that ‘ In the show after season 3 I will be present live in the show where you can talk to us, ask questions and even give your suggestions. The five issues that came up in the show in the earlier season, I took them to the Prime Minister. We had never thought that Our case will be heard in this way, we were not sure about that. When we had shown the first episode on female infanticide, the then Health Minister took an immediate action. But a large dynamic step was taken by the State Ministry also. After our show on the disabled,the DM of Gwalior made 95 percent of places in Gwalior disable friendly.
In response to a question Aamir said that after the 26/11 crash all of us were very tensed. Every country started taking stringent security measures to prevent terror attacks, but more dreadful is the situation where we fight amongst us. Fifty percent of women are victims of domestic violence. It’s much scarier. It must stop. When the sufferers of crime will raise their voice on this issue then politicians too will take care of it.
According to Aamir ‘I’m an emotional person, I do not hide. When we make efforts to prevent emotions that means that somewhere we have become rigid. Whatever I am, I am the same way. What kind of children are we raising, that’s also very important. What ever we teach our children they carry the same to their later years. Modi ji’s speech of August 15, was good, he said that now the time has arrived that we should take care of our boys that how are we bringing them up.”
Aamir said, that whatever he does, he does it with heart. I’d only do a work when my heart is in it. When I made Delhi-Belly , I didn’t make it for money. Even asked an ‘A’ certificate from the censor board, even told People before the release of the film, that there are some obscene words in the film.
