According to sources, Hazare was impressed with Aamir's television show - Satyamev Jayate - which had created public awareness about various social issues persisting in India. Citing the response and tremendous impact of the show on aam-aadmi, Hazare is believed to have decided to ask the Bollywood star to join his team.
However, official talks with Aamir will happen only after his return from Haj where he currently is accompanying his mother.
As a mark of solidarity, the actor had shared the dais with Hazare during his initial fast protest against UPA government and had also sent a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asking them to pay heed to the septuagenarian's demand over Lokpal Bill.

After disbanding his former team, Hazare is currently busy in forming his new team and if sources are to be believed then the Gandhian is also trying to include erstwhile government employees in his movement.
Hazare had held meeting and discussions with several ex-servicemen as he is hoping to utilise the considerable experience of aged bureaucrats.
Former Indian Army chief VK Singh has also been approached to join the team. However, no confirmation has been made yet from his side.
