After getting rave reviews for his show Satyamev Jayate, Aamir Khan has garnered another feather in his cap.

He has been featured on the cover of the Time magazine for the month of Septemeber 2012. Aamir is the third Indian actor after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Parveen Babi to be featured on the cover. Sachin Tendulkar was the last Indian to be featured on the cover.

The question Time has posed to its readers is, Khan's Quest - Can one actor change a nation?.

Aamir Khan is currently in Chicago shooting for his upcoming action thriller Dhoom -3.

Freida was never put on the cover of People US edition. Only indian edition.

Parveen Babi was on the EUROPE time magazine cover.

THIS MAN is a liar!!! all he does is a glycereine act in satyameva jayate ..aamir stop crying like a girl and get down and do something for the Nation instead of having affairs after affairs

Parveen Babi was on the Europe Edition.

Ash Rai only appeared on the October 27, 2003 ASIA EDITION of Time Magazine.
She was never ever on an American edition of Time Magazine nor on the Europrean/MiddleEast Covers.
Anyone can go to Time Magazine's website and look up the covers from past issues of the magazine.

JUST STOP THE LIES VOICEWRITER, OXYGEN.

Who cares that SRK has a Time cover? It's so silly how SRK lovers jump into the conversation just to say, "my guy was on the cover too!" So? What Aamir has done/tried to do with Satyamev Jayate is somethingno other actor has the cajones to do. Certainly not SRK. Aamir may have his flaws, but he is not content to just be a "superstar". I admire people that want to do more than collect a paycheck and throw lavish parties day and night. At least give him credit for continuing to challenge the system, not only onscreen but offscreen too.

Few people know that shahrukh khan won unesco award for his charities which no one hear about,good work does not need to be in public ,it must come from heart,even he said before ,when he was asked if he does good work, yes but I do not want to speak about ,shahrukh khan is not like salman or amir,in fact he is much better but media hardly speak about his good work and tries to degrade him,I am not fan of any of the khans acting but to be honest I love shahrukh khan character ,he is real man.pinkvilla post this

Though it’s not directly related to this post, but before Freida Pinto only Salman Khan was on the cover of a USA edition of people magazine. And all these, including Aishwarya, are only on Asia editions of magazines so far.

PV hope you guys post my comment.

Srk was on the cover page of a special issue. He was one among the 20other people who were covered in the cover story.

This is the Asia version, not the US version

Yeah @Oxygen, SRK's cover was/is not popular at all most people (myself included) are just hearing about it now.

haha this is not the us edition

i dont think one can CHANGE a nation just by a show..... ofcourse he did a great job, the show was fabulous
but i want to ask what exactly that can change? people watched that show, cried watching it, appreciated it..... and forgot about it! sorry if i sound negative but its the truth IMO. Again as i said, i do appreciate his work and he TRULEY, ABSOLUTELY deserve it i m just answering the question "can one actor change a nation" - not that easily i guess. :)
again sorry for my NEGATIVE comment, lol
btw good for him :)
pinkvilla post this please

ash rai NEVER on the American edition of TIME Magazine. it's quite easy to look up by going to Time Magazine's official web site.

get your facts straight voicewriter aka schmuck, aka sujata, aka vanity girl, etc.....

Aishwarya was on the cover of Time ASIA and not Time USA!!!!!!!!!! please get your facts right posters below.

AAMIR get the BOTX BRAND of your good friend SALMAN ...I suggest not to take SAIF'S

AAMIR, SRK, PARVEEN were only on the ASIAN?SOUTH ASIAN edition covers... it was only ASH who had the privelege of appearing in TIME MAGAZINE US COVERS at a very young age.. a SALUTE to her

this man is just OVERRATED. All he does is childish act and that doesn't suits his age..may be his choice of films are IMPECCABLE that's all ....when I watched his SATYAMATE JAYATE episode which was about WOMEN DICRIMINATION one question arised in my mind where did his concern gvanish when AISHWARYA was thrownout of KHAN MOVIES ..this EGO DRIVEN khan used her name for the film which was eventually a FLOP.

@voiceswriter Srk's was just a special issue or something.I think for South Asia/India.Not sure.So don't know if he counts!

Awesome website.......

Srk was on a special issue not the regular one. He was one among the 20 people who were covered in the cover story.

By the way, Aamir has such pretty eyes.

@Oxygen I never saw SRK's cover until you said it. Just googled it, good on him.

I don't get why everyone is so worried about Aamir and his "extramarital affairs". His ex wife is over it, so you should be too. It didn't happen to you! He But honestly, I personally do NOT care what Aamir did in his personal life. His show has brought to light so many issues that people weren't openly talking about and would turn a blind eye too. I'm happy that this show is giving people a platform to speak about the issues plaguing society and help out those who are affected.

If people can forgive Salman for killing a person and speak about how thoughtful and good of a human being Salman is then why can't the same be said about Aamir?

Great!But Aishwarya is the only Indian actor to appear on the times magazine coverpage throughout all/most(US,Asia etc) of their covers of the world,like @voiceswriter says.Aamir,Parveen Babi,SRk appeared in only in the South Asia/Asia covers. :)
But still good to see him!

AISHWARYA RAI and SONIA GANDHI was on ASIAN EDITION

AMIR,SACHIN,PARVEEN,MANMOHAN SINGH was on INDIAN edition

Thank you for posting SRK's Time cover!!! Didn't see your comment before my previous comments. That is what I am saying, why only bang the drum about Aamir Khan and ARB and Parveen Babi, but totally exclude SRK??? I just don't get the Indian media, what do they get from false, anti-SRK reporting??? This is not journalism, this is nonsense and deliberate manipulation of public's opinions!

Pinkvilla, I dare you to change the text of your this story and write the correct story instead of this misleading story!

"Aamir is the FOURTH Indian actor after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Parveen Babi, and SHAH RUKH KHAN to be featured on the cover"!!!!

What the!!!??? It is not just Aishwarya Rai and Praveen Babi who were featured on the cover of Time before Aamir Khan! Shah Rukh Khan was also featured on the cover of Time Magazine in 2004 with he cover story of "Asia's Heroes: 20 under 40"!!!

I just don't understand what the Indian media including Pinkvilla has got against SRK that they want to downplay all his achievements! What a shame! He is so highly regarded all over the world, but treated like this in his own country, a true pity and loss for India!

Obama is indeed on our current (US) cover. Aamir's cover is the TIME Asia cover, Aishwarya was on the cover of the US edition. There you go.
http://www.time.com/time/magazine

Yes, it's the Asian edition of Time. But it is still a huge achievement for Aamir and well deserved.

Go Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamir!♥♥♥

This is the INDIA edition of Time magazine, not the original American edition, and it's the same with the Parveen Babi TIME cover as well as all the other Indian actors on TIME Magazine.

Well, thank you Aamir you are in ways making a difference and Inshallah lots more to come. Thank you. It's extremely gratifying to know that India is producing great people!

Dummies eh? Wow, just so you know you don't sound very intelligent yourself sweetheart ;)

To the person who said that he tooks big checks out from Satyamev Jayate.. that is definitely not true. Get your facts straight before you voice your opinions. Most of the money made during the show was either given to donations or it was used towards their next episode. So many other articles even quoted that he actually lost so much of his own money from SMJ. It's okay not to like someone.. but at least dislike them for the right reasons and not for the false information.

The latest U.S Cover has President Obama on the cover.
This must be the Indian edition ?

Aamir KAAN.

Even for looks is a good reason to make the cover of TIME is you're that beautiful, hater. Though I must correct you, Aishwarya made the cover for B&P as she was seen as ushering in a new wave of cinema. Keep obsessing about her looks.

OK For all you dummies, these Indian actors/actresses have only been featured on TIME Magazine's India/Asia editions and not on the American editions nor on the International editions of the magazine.
So your Indian actors/actresses are not popular globally except with the desi crowd living overseas.

ab yaar inssan at least apne personal issues to handle kr sakta hai, kya usme v koi social media ya fir 3rd person ki zarurat hai..nd its personal choice...shadi se pahle log kahe 3-4 gil frnd banate hain, fir to uspe v amir ko show karna chahiye according to u...stupid thoda to dimag lagaya hota ye lame sa comment krne k pahle...

Aamir Khan had an EXTRA MARITAL affair with Jessica Hines and had an illegitimate son with her while he was already married to Reena Dutta! It is not something he did before his marriage! Get your facts checked please and then comment!

Why dont Aamir fix his marital issues, rather than fixing national issues.

Good work Aamir, keep it up. Aish should use her star power for such noble causes.

Which family? The family he had with his first wife and 2 children? The unofficial family he had with Jessica Hines and their illegitimate son? Or the family he has with Kiran Rao and his new son? Yes he has 4 children from 2 marriages and one illegitimate one from an extra marital affair. Too bad Aamir Khan never tackled these important issues in his show. That would not get him on the cover of Times Magazine after all!
___________________________

Since when is having kids out of wedlock or an affair a social issue? And considering half the children born in the western world don't have married parents I don't think random foreign editors are going to care one bit.

That being said I think this probably a local cover. Covers around the world are usually different.

"one illegitimate one from an extra marital affair" WHAT?????

Well deserved indeed. At least there is 1 example I can cite from Indian Film Industry - you can be a good actor, make good movies, earn boat load of money, impact the social conscience of our hopeless country. Sadly same cant be said about certain "stars". He deserves this and more. Period. It is also disturbing that we need AK to stir us up, make us take a note of the ills that our society faces. His movies aside, I hope he continues to make more meaningful shows and atleast help us get over the trash that Ekta Kapoor & Co subject us to on small screen.

Awesome Cover... Awesome Aamir
(photographer needed to fix the angle of the light, eyes are looking wonky cuz of it)

WOW..Super Like

It's high time! He deserves it. The first male actor in India to be on the cover of TIME. Aishwarya, Parveen, Sachin, Sania(for a special issue) and Aamir being the only celebrities from India to be featured on the cover!

Sachin, Aamir and Aishwarya richly deserve it. Don't know about other two.

TIME's power list can be ridiculous though

I am gonna buy this! With the kind of reputation he has gained so far, he could have chosen to do any kind of TV show. Even if it was a saande ka oil selling show, producers would have paid him the money he demanded. And many people would have watched it because there's Aamir Khan in it.

But he chose to put his time, efforts and stardom in a show like Satyamev Jayate. If you cannot appreciate it, please jump into a bottomless well.

He's the second highest paid actor and the highest paid celebrity endorser in the country. He could endorse 25 brands like Dhoni and make all the money he wants. He doesn't have to shed crocodile tears and get flak from a few morons for doing something good to make some money.

WOW.

About time. I wanted to see something like this. They could have also picked Aamir in one of his introspective moods. Aamir deserves all the kudos for his work and vision. It all comes from his heart. Why was Parveen Babi on the cover?

I'll have to say he's a really good actor who knows how to play the media and people...all top actors know that..he didn't wanted to do something senseless for TV, which is why he did Satyamev Jayate..but if he DID really care about solving all these issues then he shouldn't have taken a big paycheck for it..also, why does he have diamond earrings on in this pic?

@Aamir Khan could shed some more fake tears and he could get the Bharat Ratna for all you know...the magic of glycerine! What a total shame! If this program was such a social change maker, why did he never tackle the wide spread issue of divorce and extra marital affairs??? Oh wait cause then that would expose him and his affairs with Jessica Hines, his illegitimate son Jaan Hines, and his other affair with Kiran Rao and the plight of his poor children from his first marriage and the plight of his poor ex-wife Reena Rao!

ab yaar inssan at least apne personal issues to handle kr sakta hai, kya usme v koi social media ya fir 3rd person ki zarurat hai..nd its personal choice...shadi se pahle log kahe 3-4 gil frnd banate hain, fir to uspe v amir ko show karna chahiye according to u...stupid thoda to dimag lagaya hota ye lame sa comment krne k pahle...

To all the ppl getting so happy that he is on the cover of Times, I think Bin Laden also made it to its cover once.......so its not such a big deal and honour that you all are making it to be!

At least he is there for good social reason unlike Aish' who is mostly there for looks

"Can one actor change a nation?"
Go Aamir! What an honor!

who were t he first two?
__________________________________________________________________________________________
Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan and Parveen Babi.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahooo!!!!

Those who think he only got publicity through Satyamev Jayate need to shake off their hate & see the impact the show made in just 3 months! Bill on child abuse & manual scavenging have been passed by Parliament, donations worth crores raised for NGOs, new campaigns for safe food & protection from child abuse have started by citizens after watching this show, generic medicine stores are opening! All such impact in just 13 episodes! He has made a difference which others aren't able to make for years.

There are reasons why international & national media honoured him! Deserves all honours & more!

Hats off to Aamir Khan for using his star power in the right way. Maybe he cannot change India overnight,but he has certainly moved towards that direction by giving exposure to hidden truths of Indian society like female foeticide ,child sexual abuse,medical malpractice,etc,that has plagued India for years. Because he's such a big superstar and because everyone always expect Aamir Khan to bring something new to the plate,coupled with concern for the nation as citizens,billions of Indians have watched 'Satyameva Jayate',that has already given exposure and spread awareness about the problems that plague India. Now awareness about something is a very important step towards reforming the society,so that's already done.Well done Aamir:-)You are a national treasure and the most path breaking & innovative man in Bollywood,whether it is your films or social service.It is such an honour to be on the cover of the TIMES magazine,& it's wonderful that this immensely talented and versatile man has got it:-):-):-)

I am so buying this issue!!!!

To the person who commented that Aamir did the show for publicity ? Do you think that Aamir did not have a huge fan following and publicity before the show ? How ignorant. People like you can only say negative things even about such a positive show. Very sad.

Aamir Khan could shed some more fake tears and he could get the Bharat Ratna for all you know...the magic of glycerine! What a total shame! If this program was such a social change maker, why did he never tackle the wide spread issue of divorce and extra marital affairs??? Oh wait cause then that would expose him and his affairs with Jessica Hines, his illegitimate son Jaan Hines, and his other affair with Kiran Rao and the plight of his poor children from his first marriage and the plight of his poor ex-wife Reena Rao!

We need more people like him in the world. All the best to him and his beautiful family.

I guess Aamir Khan is getting what he REALLY wanted out of this show, publicity! Good going Aamir Khan, the fake tears sure helped!

wish he had given a miss to the ear-studs

what an amazing thing! i hope he can bring front all issues and ppl will be educated and learn to be better humans!

Totally loved the show and my respect and admiration for Aamir grew more.
The best actor in the current lot, and also showed his responsibility towards the country with Satyameva Jayate.
I am not saying that other actors are not doing their bit (many actors donate), but this show by Aamir made many Indians think and act differently towards social causes.

Very happy that The Times mentioned about it and have Aamir as their face page.

Also appreciate Amitabh Bachchan on helping the health campaign in eradicating polio in India.

one of the best TIME cover ever seen, love you Aamir

that's such an honour
BEST of luck to him for his projects

I know tons of people were very sceptical of his work and the money he was earning but in actual fact he could have made more if he had done a half a minute colgate ad.

I actually think the show wasn't there for nass change either. It was a way to call out to people sitting at home who were thinking they were alone in a battle either against alcoholism, dowry demands or abuse. Even if one person out of billions decided to seek help I think it would be worth it.

There is something about Aamir Khan which makes him sexier than lots of young,tall six packs guys.

Well he cannot change nation but he has definitely made a difference & real life impact in 3 months what others are unable to do in decades! Hats off to him for conceiving, conceptualising, producing & hosting Satyamev Jayate & making such a massive project possible!

Who takes breaks from a thriving career to make a show for social causes? How many TV shows get discussed in Parliament? No show ever raised donations from public for NGOs like SMJ did.

Aamir took it to radio, regional channels, newspapers & installed special screens in villages also for poor people to be able to watch the show! A never seen before 360 degree effort!!

Just hats off to him for using his star power & resources in such a noble direction!

Deserves all accolades for it!

who r the other 2 ?

I wish he does change the nation for good.....he is atleast trying to ....wish u luck, Aamir

Just love this man. A person who knows how to use his star power wisely for his nation and the better

who were t he first two?
