Aamir Khan, who featured on the cover of TIME magazine after getting labelled as a celebrity crusader, thanks to his television show Satyamev Jayate, finds mention in the prestigious American magazine once again.

The 47-year-old Bollywood veteran actor has made it to the magazine's annual 100 Most Influential People List of 2013, and has been placed in the Pioneers category.

Music maestro A R Rahman, in a glowing account of Aamir Khan's stardom in the magazine's online edition, explains how the actor uses his celebrity status to address social issues that are normally pushed under the rug.
