Aamir Khan. Tom Hanks is impressed with Aamir Khan's work for society.
Tom Hanks read about Aamir Khan's show Satyamev Jayate and his work for Indian society in Times magazine's September 10th issue. In that issue, Aamir Khan was positioned as India's "first superstar-activist". Tom Hanks told IANS, "Giving back (to the society) is tough. I really admire the work that Aamir Khan is doing (in India). Very few celebrities take the initiative of coming forward to change the society and he has done a remarkable job."
Tom Hanks further added, "It's the 'giving-back' that's tough. Aamir Khan seems to understand the influencing power of being a celebrity and is using it to act as a catalyst for change in society, something that definitely deserves both appreciation and support from all quarters."
Well, we agree to the hilt Tom!
