Vote intelligently, says apolitical Aamir Khan
Aamir Khan is guarded about sharing his views on any political party and when it comes to the new Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) the actor-filmmaker prefers to wait and watch. Meanwhile, he has urged the youth to step out and vote intelligently in the polls.
At a press conference at his residence on his 49th birthday Friday, Aamir was asked which party he is favouring and he said: "I am not supporting any political party's campaign, nor do I support any political party."
"It's a democratic country and I believe each person should take their own decision and must go out and vote intelligently," he added.
Looking fit as a fiddle, the "3 Idiots" and "Dhoom 3" actor believes the youth especially must cast their vote.
"Every person of voting age should vote," he added.
Asked to comment on Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP, Aamir said: "AAP is a new party. Let's see what they do. As I said, I don't support any political party, but if there's an important cause, we all come forward."
True to his word, he is raising various issues on his well-researched chat show "Satyamev Jayate".
Aamir had earlier lent support to Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement.
