He has reached the peak of his career in Bollywood and has delivered his best over and over, especially in the past few years. Now where to go from here?
Aamir Khan has taken the perfect step with his latest TV Show Satyamev Jayate.
I was more interested in watching the show because of what its title suggested than the reason that it is has been produced and anchored by the man himself.
The show began and Aamir Khan went ahead and immediately introduced the women on the show one by one and got on with the programme. The onus was clearly on the guests and not on the anchor.
What I liked best was the way Aamir handled the subject. This was about female foeticide – real life cases, the problems that pregnant women face all over the country. He brought proof on the show as to how it is not just the lower class and uneducated who are party to this. There was this lady doctor from Delhi who had had some terrible experiences when she became pregnant with twin girls.
The stories were revealed in such a way that it brought tears to not just the audience on TV but all of us at home who were watching the programme. Aamir Khan was in tears many times too. Yeah, it’s easy to point out that he is an actor and so could probably cry at will. Only if you watched the show you will know the tears for being genuine.
Another thing I liked very much was the way the programme ended. Aamir Khan brought out the fact that a district in Punjab – Nawanshahr – has completely eradicated the problem. Through interviews and videos, it was shown very clearly how this could be made possible throughout India. HOPE! That’s the need of the hour.
You need guts to face TRUTH! This show is not for the weak-minded, but the lion-hearted.
