"When I see real heroes and listen to their stories, it really inspires me. I think we have, in different degrees, strengths and abilities," said Aamir presenting an award at the Real Heroes Awards of CNN-IBN and Reliance Industries Limited in Mumbai on Wednesday night.
Twenty-four real-life heroes from across six regions of the country were shortlisted and their work classified into categories such as Women's Welfare, Social Welfare, Health and Disability, Youth Education and Children and Sports.
Ace cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was present on the occasion and received a standing ovation.
