Washington: The September issue of the iconic Time magazine features Bollywood's "Mr Perfectionist", Aamir Khan after he focussed several ray of hopes on the mindset of every Indian through every episode of his hugely successful TV show - Satyamev Jayate.

"He's breaking the Bollywood mold by tackling India's social evils. Can one actor change a nation?" says the blurb on the cover, which features a close-up of the actor looking intensely into the camera. Aamir was able to generate awareness and give a reality check of society, certain thinking and burning issues of the country and achieved the feet with show's much researched subjects that no other show was able to pull off.

The TV show brought social issues to the fore. It started with the issue of female foeticide, traversed over various burning social issues informing, educating, sensitising and touching audiences' hearts and ended its 13-week journey with the spotlight on the right to equality.

His show proved to be an eye-opener for the government, who took the matters instantly, and seeped in ways to deal with the issues, making it more alert than ever. It even resulted government setting up fast-track courts, improvement in vigilance and many such things, hence helping improve facilities and services for citizens and also bringing a change to the people's mindset.

Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Dr Manmohan Singh, Narendra Modi are faces from political grounds to have locked covers of Time over the years, while Sachin Tendulkar and Sania Mirza have done the same from the field of sports.
