Details for Amir Khan : Crusader for Change
The book analyses superstar Aamir Khan’s ability to be a creative powerhouse, and how he uses that strength through movies like Lagaan, Taare Zameen Par, 3 Idiots, to effect change in the way India view things—revisiting our struggle for freedom, the way we view children with special needs, the shortcomings of the education system, and more. With Dangal, Khan sought to bring about a change in gender stereotypes, shattering them to a large extent. In Secret Superstar and his pathbreaking television show Satyamev Jayate, Khan has addressed issues like female infanticide, medical malpractices, child abuse and more and has truly been a harbinger of change. To achieve this, he firmly believes in thoroughly researching the role, using the best sources available to him, putting in hard work to effect difficult transformations, creating a powerful story around each ideological issue and steadfastly believing in his ideas in the face of all odds.
