Aamir Khan has rubbished reports of threat to his life in the wake of sensitives issues taken up by him during the first season of his television show 'Satyamev Jayate'.

After Aamir touched upon sensitive topics like female foeticide, medical malpractices and honour killing in 'Satyamev Jayate', he had apparently received several threats to stop highlighting such cases.

There were reports that Aamir had ordered a bullet proof car as some of the episodes of 'Satyamev Jayate 2' may throw light on governance and issues related to Lok Sabha elections 2014.

"I have not got any threats. I don't fear... threats. Do not go with the rumours. There is no threat to me," the actor said.

The show anchored by Aamir, 48, will be aired on television from March 2.

"We think ourselves as communicators, our responsibility is to talk about an issue, present the data and talk about the law. I want people to join... engage in the movement and stand for the right things. Personally, I would like to endorse women empowerment," he said.
