Actor Aamir Khan, whose much-awaited TV show Satyamev Jayate hit the small screens yesterday, says he is not keen on joining politics and being a member of Rajya Sabha.

Last month Bollywood diva Rekha and cricket maestro Sachin Tendulkar were nominated to the Rajya Sabha.

When asked if he would ever accept the offer of the Rajya Sabha, Aamir said, "First of all, the offer is not there. I feel I am happy wherever I am today and whatever work I want to do, I am doing that through my field... profession."

"And I feel I would be able to contribute more to the society through my field. I feel if I go somewhere else, I doubt if I could do that much contribution to the society," the 47-year-old actor said while talking to reporters yesterday.

Film personalities, who were nominated to the Rajya Sabha in the past include Hema Malini, Vyjayantimala, Nargis Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar and Sivaji Ganesan, among others.
