Gates posted on his blog, “I’m looking forward to meeting Aamir Khan, the Bollywood star and activist. I want to hear about his work as a UNICEF ambassador for child nutrition. I also want to hear about his TV show, ‘Satyamev Jayate’ …. And maybe, if I’m lucky, he’ll show me a few dance moves!”
Gates further added, “There’s a lot more on my plate. I want to say thanks in advance to everyone who’s making time to meet with me and making this trip happen.”
Aamir Khan’s has turned into a full-fledged social activist, after his TV show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ tackled various social evils in society. Last year, the show raised a number of social issues including female foeticide, dowry, child sex abuse etc.
