Update : 29 Oct 2013, 06:03 PM

Aamir Khan has been felicitated with a prestigious US award in recognition of his successful efforts in sparking conversation on the country’s pressing social problems through his popular TV show “Satyamev Jayate.”

The star was presented with the Inaugural America Abroad Media Award along with Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow and the International Center on Non-violent Conflict (ICNC) at a function in America. Which was attended by  the city’s prominent figures, including those from the State Department, Pentagon and diplomats. “I have no idea that how the work that we started back home would interest somehow outside India,” Aamir said in his acceptance speech.

“Me and my team are trying to do this show with love, because we feel that we are part of the problem and we are also part of the solution. We need to question ourselves and look inside as opposed to pointing outside,” said  Aamir. It was one of the rare occasions when Aamir, who has made it a practice of not attending award shows, accepted an award.
