Indian actor Aamir Khan has become the third Bollywood star to feature on the cover page of Time magazine after making it to the September 10 2012 Asia edition’s cover.

Khan’s photo, along with the caption “Khan’s Quest,” appears as the magazine highlights the Bollywood actor’s popular television show “Satyamev Jayate.”

The 13-episode show became hugely popular in India and also attracted audiences across the world as Khan discussed and covered sensitive social issues plaguing the country.

The show’s popularity also spread to social networking websites, as the star evoked a range of emotions as he dealt with the sensitive topics.

Khan becomes the third Indian film personality to feature on the magazine’s cover after Aishwarya Rai Bachachn (2003) and Parveen Babi (1976).
