After Aishwarya and SRK, now Aamir Khan graces Time magazine cover


By Hindustan Times

Bollywood star Aamir Khan features on the cover of Time magazine following the huge success of his 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.

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.

Other Bollywood actors who have featured on Time cover are Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Parveen Babi.

Parveen Babi
After acting in superhit flick Deewar, Parveen Babi became the covergirl of Time's July 1976 issue. The cover story was titled 'Asia's Frenetic Film Scene.'

Aishwarya Rai
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was called 'New Face Of Film' on 2003 cover. The magazine quoted: 'Aishwarya Rai leads the invasion as Bollywood goes global and becomes hip.'

Shah Rukh Khan
SRK graced the cover of Time's special issue in October 2004. The cover story was about 'Asia's heroes.'
