Aamir Khan has become a huge star in China. With the success of films like 3 Idiots (2009), PK (2014), Dangal (2016) and the latest Secret Superstar (2017), the actor has become a household name in the country.
He recently spoke about his triumph in China during an event in Singapore.
Khan believes in the power of the audience and given them the entire credit. “I had nothing to do with it. It is the love that the audience in China gave to my work,” he said.
The actor claimed that there is no difference between the sensibilities of the Indian and Chinese audiences. “I have watched my films with the Chinese audiences in China. They have reacted in the same manner as the Indian audiences [did],” Khan added.
Over the years, the 53-year-old actor has been involved in a lot of social causes. He was asked if he would like to enter politics to bring about a change in the society. Khan, however, replied in the negative, explaining that he has a better chance of bringing change as an artist.
“I am not cut out for politics. If the goal of politics is to contribute to nation building and shape society for the better, I am better placed to do it as a creative artist,” he said.
Khan will be next seen in Thugs Of Hindostan, also starring Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif. The film is due to be released during Diwali this year.
