Bollywood star Aamir Khan, who chooses to give a miss to film award functions, decided to turn up for the Star Parivaar Awards event here recently. The host of "Satyamev Jayate" said the small screen medium is vital to him.
"For me, being a part of TV is very important. My films are (for) entertainment but through TV, I am bringing forward social causes and (to) move towards a better future," Aamir said here.
He is currently working on the third season of "Satyamev Jayate", via which he raises important social issues of the country.
"We are currently working on the third season of 'Satyamev Jayate'. We are researching on the topics and it is going good," the 48-year-old said.
What brought him to the Star Parivaar Awards held here Sunday?
"I have been working with Star for many months and when they invited me, I was happy to come," he added.
"Satyamev Jayate" season one went on air on Star Plus May 2012 while the second season was aired in March 2014 and ended in April.
