The so called Mr. Perfectionist of Bollywood, Aamir Khan is all set to rock small screen now.
Satyamev Jayate is Aamir Khan’s 1st television project and the production house, Star Plus, has announced that the show will create history by becoming the first ever programme to go live at the same time on a private channel as well as national broadcaster DD1.
While talking to media, actor Aamir Khan said, “This is for the first time in the Indian history that a show will also be showcased simultaneously on national television channel DD1. Besides, the show will be dubbed in four southern languages – Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada. This show is being launched on a large scale.”
Aamir Khan was talking to media during the launch of the Reality Show’s promo song. The promo song of the show is a love song.
Further, the show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ will go on air from May 6 on Star Plus.
Aamir Khan said, “I don’t understand TRPs (Television Rating Points) and GRPs (Gross Rating Points). I have no idea how to calculate it! I don’t care about TRPs. It is important to reach out to the Indian audiences. If viewers want to see, they will see or else it is up to them.”
According to him, television is a very powerful medium to circulate information and awareness to people allover. He said, “I had to make complete use of this medium. This is a baby step towards it.”
He said, “I cannot say I understand TV completely. I was earlier scared to go ahead with the project. I can only say I have made this show with complete honesty and without compromising on anything.”
Aamir said, “Earlier, we were planning to compose a national song or like one anthem. Later, I realised, why am I doing this show? I have love in my heart for my country, like each Indian who love their country. Then we went with a romantic song. We thought, it should be a love song that reflects the love for my country and relate with each Indian.”
In the meantime, it would be interesting to know that that new show is composed by Ram Sampath and written by Prasoon Joshi, the song is sung by Keerthi Sagathia.
Moreover, the show has got the famous Ramayana and Mahabharta slot – Sunday 11 a.m.
The 47-year-old actor said, “I wanted to telecast my show on Sunday morning. I want each family to watch the show and connect with it. We have watched Ramayana and Mahabarata and it used to come on Sunday morning. The shows created a different atmosphere. I am not scared of the saas or bahus. My thought was Bharat jodo abhiyaan.”
Aamir Khan said, “I am not attempting to change anybody’s life. I don’t have the strength to change anyone’s life. When I speak about change, it’s about changing myself. I am not interested in changing the world. Who am I to change anyone’s life? I can only connect to them emotionally and empathise.”
Though, the actor talked on every concept of the show, but he had not revealed the concept of the show, he just said with a smile, “I can’t talk much about the show.”
Now, it would be really interesting to see Aamir Khan of television. Best wishes to his work and concept.
