Bollywood Superstar Aamir Khan might not hesitate in expressing his opinions on various social-political issues, even if that lands him in trouble. But being part of politics doesn’t feature in the superstar’s plans. Aamir Khan said on Sunday that he has no plans to join politics. Aamir spoke during a session at NDTV’S special youth conclave ‘YUVA’. The 53-year-old Bollywood actor said, while responding to a query on whether he would enter politics, he is ‘scared’ of the idea and believes he can be a better influence through his films.
“I don’t want to be a politician. I am not meant for that. I am a communicator. I am not interested in politics… I am also scared of politics. Who isn’t? So, I stay away. I am a creative person. Politics is not my thing. I want to entertain people. I feel I will be able to do more as a creative person than as a politician,” Aamir said. The actor has been extensively working towards water crisis for the past three years in Maharashtra through his ‘Paani’ Foundation, which aims at imparting knowledge at the grassroots level in the state about water conservation and watershed management. Aamir said the issue of water scarcity can be countered only when the “people own the problem.”
