Asked whether he would like to be nominated to the Rajya Sabha like cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and actress Rekha, Aamir said, “I won’t comment on what they are doing. They are my friends. But if such opportunity arises, I will think whether I can contribute to society at that point of time in a better way or not. If that happens, I will be there everyday.”
The 49-year-old ‘Dhoom 3’ star was speaking at the Panchayat AajTak programme organised by the India Today Group here.
Asked what he thought about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s attempts to centralise power, Aamir said, “I don’t know whether he is doing the right thing. You know better.”
Answering a question about the portrayal of women in Hindi films, Aamir said, “I admit that Hindi films have been irresponsible in terms of portrayal of women.”
“It sends out a very wrong message. Songs like ‘Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast’ (from Mohra) and ‘Khambe Jaisi Khadi Hai’ (from Dil which featured Aamir) are not good. We should respect sentiments of women. I accept my own hand in it, but I will try not to do this now. I will take this up with my friends and be sensitive henceforth,” Aamir said.
