Aamir and his team will pursue the governments to get a solution for each issues society has been facing, asserted the actor. However, speaking about his decision regarding the offer from the election commission, Aamir claimed that this would be too early to reveal everything.

He said, "Mujhe ek request aai hai.. pata nai mujhe is bare me baat krni chahiye ya nahi becoz its unofficial (Not sure whether to discuss it or not, I got an offer)."
Giving more information regarding the offer, the actor added, "I got this request from election commission to be a part of their campaign. This is unofficial because it was meant to check whether I am free or not."
"...I said I am free lets see now. In this campaign we will encourage people youngsters to vote. Hopefully I will be d part of this campaign," he added.
