Aamir Khan and social change

Aamir Khan is an extremely successful Bollywood actor. He could have used his fame to continue to only become a better artiste and grow his wealth. However, for the past decade, he has deliberately pivoted his career to focus on using his power as an influential and his skills as a story-teller and showman to drive an organic change in how the common man in India thinks about problems faced by disadvantaged populations. This one-on-one chat at the “Women in the World” conference is one of my favorite pieces on how he thinks through and grapples with changing mindsets through his work. It’s powerful, moving, and brutally and simply honest.
