After Kareena Kapoor was honoured in the UK, it was Aamir Khan's turn to get honoured in the US!

Aamir is among the few celebrities to have been honoured by the America Abroad Media (AAM). He was awarded for making an impact on social issues through television and cinema. His TV show Satyamev Jayate dealt with quite a few social causes in India.

The special event was held at the Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC recently.
