Former Pakistan cricket captain and politician Imran Khan was in India for Agenda Aaj Tak 2015, and also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi. At the event, he sat in the audience during Aamir Khan’s session and told the actor what he thought about his choices, by giving the example of Dhobi Ghat. The 2010 film, starring Aamir, was backed by him and directed by his ex-wife, filmmaker Kiran Rao. Also read: Aamir’s golden run continues with Dhobi Ghat

‘I wish to give you a compliment’

When Aamir was told that Imran too had a question for the actor, the Pakistani politician said in Urdu, “Actually Aamir, I wish to give you a compliment. Look, I think there are two types of people in this world. The materialistic people think for themselves. If a man plays cricket and becomes famous, then he thinks he can make money from cricket all his life. And in the same way, you can earn a lot of money from just acting.”

He added, “But I saw your film Dhobi Ghat by chance. The compliment is that you say that ‘I am not political’. But this is politics. That you see the injustice in a society. Be it English or Urdu medium, where one child is privileged, and the other is not. When you point this out and give people a social consciousness, it is a huge contribution.” Moved by what Imran had to say, Aamir thanked the Pakistani cricketer-turned-politician.
