Mumbai, Mar. 14 (ANI): Aamir Khan, who turned 51 today, believes that going from the lime light of the film studios to the lime light of active public life is not right, unless passion is involved.
“There are a few stars from our Bollywood industry who have been in politics – Shatrughan ji, Vinod Khanna ji, Raj Babbar ji and even Amit (Amitabh Bachchan) ji for sometimes. I feel passion is needed for doing some work,” the ‘PK’ star told the media here, while sharing his viewpoint on actors turning politicians.
He added, “I think those people should get into politics who really have passion for it. Getting into politics just because you are famous is not right.”
Khan further said that getting involved in politics is not the only way to serve one’s country, adding that he can contribute with his current position to the nation building sans the fray.
“As far as I am concerned, I feel I don’t need to get into politics to donate my share of contribution for the society. I can contribute to society as an artist. I can contribute to the nation building, from the position I am in now,” said Mr. Perfectionist.
He further said that his upcoming movie ‘Dangal’ is one of his ways of contributing to the society as it revolves around the Government’s ‘Beti Bachao’ social scheme. (ANI)
