Aamir Khan has made it to the Time magazine's list of 100 Most Influential People of 2013 and, according to reports, the actor is all set to fly to New York for a celebratory dinner which might be attended by US President Barack Obama, who also appears on the list.
According to a Hindustan Times report, the actor has asked for a three day leave of absence from shooting Dhoom: 3 to attend the party.
This will be the second time that Aamir will meet President Obama. The actor and activist first met the US President in 2010 during his India visit.
Aamir, who has gathered worldwide appreciation for his 2012 television series Satyamev Jayate, features on one of the seven special edition covers of the 2013 Time 100 issue. He is one of three Indians on the Time list, with lawyer Vrinda Grover and Finance Minister P Chidambaram. The list also includes Barack and Michelle Obama, Pope Francis, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Malala Yousafzai, Aung San Suu Kyi, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Kate Middleton.
In February this year, Aamir met British Prime Minister David Cameron who was on a visit to India and discussed issues regarding gender inequality with college students.
