Washington: Aamir Khan has been felicitated with a prestigious U.S. award in recognition of his successful effort to create debate on country`s pressing social problems through his popular TV show `Satyamev Jayate`.

The 47-year-old Bollywood star was presented with the Inaugural America Abroad Media Award along with Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow and the International Center on Non-violent Conflict (ICNC) at a function, which was attended by city`s who`s who, including those from the State Department, Pentagon and diplomats.

"I have no idea that how the work that we started back home would interest somehow outside India," Aamir said in his acceptance speech.

"Me and my team are trying to do this show with love, because we feel that we are part of the problem and we are also part of the solution. And we need to find that. We need to question ourselves and look inside as opposed to pointing outside," he said in a panel discussion post the ceremony.

It was one of the rare occasions when Aamir, who has made it a practice of not attending award shows, accepted an award.
