Superstar Aamir Khan, who is currently busy with his TV show 'Satyamev Jayate' says that his monetary earnings from the programme are less but he is enriched by the experience of meeting different people.

There were reports that Aamir was not charging anything for the show but the actor said, "I do take money for the show, I think I should take money for the work I do. I used to earn more money through ads but I don't do much of ads now. If I look at it financially, commercially then I am earning less.

"But my earnings is more in another way like meeting people from various walks of life, touching their lives. I feel enriched," Aamir told media reporters here. 'Satyamev Jayate' has been one of the most influential television shows in the recent times. The first season saw Aamir raising some sensitive topics like female foeticide, child sexual abuse, medical malpractice, dowry system, love marriages and honour killings among others.

In the second season, which kicked off on March 2, issues like rape and police reforms were raised. The actor, however, did not elaborate on the subjects, which would be highlighted in the upcoming episodes.

On Lok Sabha polls, he said, "I will come forward for an issue but I will not campaign or support any party or person. I know people in politics. I don't want to influence anyone. I think youngsters should vote but,'first think then vote'."

In the past, Aamir did support social activist, Anna Hazare when he was fighting for corruption. On AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal, Aamir said, "It is a new party let's see what kind of work they do. I don't want to comment on them right now." His good friend Salman Khan too would be seen in a social show 'Mission Sapne', where the celebrity would be leading the life of a common man for a day and give the earnings to them only.

"I am very happy Salman is doing this kind of a show. I wish more people from industry come and support the social issues," Aamir said.
