Bollywood actor has been vocal on several social issues. He has even brought into open about various issues in the society, through the show  ‘Satyamev Jayate’, which the actor used to host. However, the actor recently revealed that he has no plans to join politics.

In an event in Delhi, the 'Dhoom 3' actor said, “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?" The 'Lagaan' actor feels that he will do better as a creative person. He said, “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 Khan has been working towards the water crisis faced by the state of Maharashtra through his 'Paani Foundation'. The main aim of the foundation is to impart knowledge about water conservation and watershed management.

Talking about the water crisis, the actor said that the issue of water scarcity can be countered only when the “people own the problem”. He further said, “They have to be the solution. It has to be a people’s movement… Our approach has always been very inclusive. We want more and more people to join the cause.” 

The actor believes it is the lifestyle of the people which is responsible for the degradation of the environment and said that we need to give up on "cell phones, TV sets or give up on watching movies, computers, etc". The 'Dangal' actor further said that we are using many resources and need to redevise our lifestyle. 

Aamir said it is easy for the public to blame the government for its woes, but things cannot get better without the participation of the citizens.“It’s easy for us to blame the government. Maharashtra government has made a lot of efforts to hit back the problem… As citizens, we should question our government. They are answerable to us. But change only happens when we become part of the solution,” he added.
