Chandigarh: Concerned over children not participating in outdoor activities, Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan on Sunday strongly lobbied for making sports an integral part of school curriculum in the country.

Interacting with media here after the airing of the first episode of the new season of 'Satyamev Jayate', the 49-year-old actor said, "Our children have the right to be taught sports as they are taught maths or English.

"There is a strong need to reach out to children of weaker sections of society for teaching them sports. Sports should be made an integral part of curriculum of main education."

On the habit of new age children interested in indoor games, Aamir said, "It frightens me that children play alone and are cut off from the rest of the world. Outdoor games help in connecting with people."

The 'Dhoom 3 ' star said that intake of drugs by the youth is also a matter of concern.

"We will come out with an episode in future to keep children away from drugs," he said.

Aamir said that each individual had a capacity to do something and must contribute towards bringing change in the country.

"If I can't solve any problem that does not mean I sit idle, keep quiet and become a fence sitter. This country belongs to all and contribution from everybody is needed for bringing a change," he said.
