Aamir Khan, who is known to shun award shows, recently attended one such event.

He even won an award for his TV show Satyamev Jayate and, instead of being given a trophy, the actor was rewarded with a box of sweets at the Star Parivaar Awards.

The 49-year-old has honoured for his contribution to society through his TV show, which deals with several social problems. "I am happy to be accepting this honour. But I don’t think you should be giving me sweets because, post Dhoom:3, I have put on a lot of weight. I think the success of the film has been too much for me," joked Aamir.

Speaking at the event, Aamir said, "For me, being a part of TV is very important. My films are (for) entertainment but through TV, I am bringing forward social causes and (to) move towards a better future."

Aamir Khan, who is currently working on the third season of Satyamev Jayate, said, "We are currently working on the third season of 'Satyamev Jayate'. We are researching on the topics and it is going good."

So what compelled Aamir Khan to make is first ever award function debut? The actor said, "I have been working with Star for many months and when they invited me, I was happy to come."

Satyamev Jayate season one went on air on Star Plus May 2012 while the second season was aired in March 2014 and ended in April.

The Star Parivaar Awards will be telecast on June 29.
