Mr. Rogers and Aamir Khan. The resemblance is uncanny.
Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate is effecting many social changes, and some fashion revolutions also. Check out his cardigan. This Khan seems to be single-handedly (double-breastedly?) bringing the Mr. Rogers cardigan back. He’s even pushing it further, sometimes rocking the cardigan vest, AKA sweater vest, AKA why?.
The cardigan vest. Accelerant to love.
Honestly, fashion wise I don’t like it. I don’t think the cardigan or sweater vest is a good look for anyone, but it does somehow inspire trust. The last public figure to rock the cardigan was the lovable Mr. Rogers, educator of countless children. He was trusted and beloved for helping and supporting children, and Aamir Khan is acquiring a similar if more adult role.
His program Satyamev Jayate is really amazing and I can’t recommend it highly enough (hat-tip to @isura for insisting that I watch it). So far I’ve watched the programs on child sexual abuse and love marriages. I’ve teared up every time, and also felt incredibly inspired. He’s really doing good work on TV, like Mr. Rogers back in the day. Seriously, go watch it.
