Aamir Khan, who was recently appointed as the national brand ambassador for UNICEF to promote child nutrition was recently asked how he could promote nutrition since he had once endorsed a soft drink brand that causes malnutrition among children.
Aamir Khan's appointment as the national brand ambassador for UNICEF to promote child nutrition hasn't gone down well with many. When Aamir was in New Delhi on Wednesday to promote child nutrition, he was asked how he could promote nutrition because of his “tainted past."
Aamir Khan replied, “I don"t have a tainted past. I haven"t done any work till date that would hurt anyone… at least not deliberately. But, if anyone still got hurt then I"d just say sorry to them from the bottom of my heart."
Aamir added, “I did Taare Zameen Par because these things (issues) touch me emotionally. It took me two years for this one and that wasn"t just for the sake of it. These things are not a burden on me. It is a responsibility and I want to reach out to more people."
