Catch Sridevi on Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate
With an average TVR opening, Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate has managed to create just the right buzz in the entire country. The show is being aired on seven channels simultaneously, namely Star Plus, Star Pravah, DD National, Star Utsav, Vijay, Star Jalsha, Star World and Asianet. It deals with social evils and is trying to make a difference in the mindset of the people.
While, the first episode discussed female foeticide, the second one will discuss child abuse. The second episode will have an added attraction, as Aamir Khan will be joined by the ‘Hawa Hawai Girl’ of Bollywood Sridevi. And, the actress will be on the show for a very valid reason. She won't be just another celebrity guest on TV, but will feature on the show to talk about a child, whose story is connected to her in a way.
As per sources, the second episode revolves around two children, who were sexually abused by their family members. The first story is about a boy and how his real uncle sexually abused him from the age of 7 years till he turned 18 years. The boy went through immense pain and bleeding, but his family members didn’t take much interest and it was his dog, who nderstood his pain. The boy in the episode has reportedly said that the dog understood him completely and wiped his tears. And, actress Sridevi is connected to this story, since apparently every time the boy was sexually abused by his uncle; he saw Sridevi's films to divert his mind. Sourcessay, "In order to make him feel good, Aamir invited Sridevi for the show and she graciously accepted his invitation." The other story in the episode will be about a 3 year old girl, who was abused by her own grandfather....being a human...

Sridevi lightens up Satyamev Jayate after high dose of dramaAamir Khan has selected the 11am slot on Sundays for ‘Satyamev Jayate’. The time-slot itself is special since epic serials like ‘Mahabharata’ and ‘Ramayana’ in the past were also aired at the same time. However, the actor chose to do same thing, albeit in a different manner. Merely in its second episode, the show preaches ‘Don’t respect elders because of their age, but respect them because of their behaviour’.
The already created hype and Aamir’s highly secretive approach about his show had grabbed him eyeballs for his first episode. But what brought us back to the second episode, was the public response and the immense credibility that lies in the brand ‘Aamir’.
In the second episode of ‘Satyamev Jayate’, Aamir chose to deal with a sensitive subject again- child sexual harassment. The episode started with Aamir’s request to all the viewers to take a conscious decision whether or not they want their kids to watch the show as it was going to highlight a sensitive issue. However, Aamir didn’t miss out on the chance to keep the kids hooked to the show, as he enlightened that there would a workshop by end of the episode which will help kids.
What leaves an impact from within the episode was Aamir’s involvement in the subject. His information and study clearly reflected through his seamless anchoring. Also, Aamir seemed at his confident best as the episode proceeded. The speakers, psychologists, victims and the real life data add the real punch to Aamir’s show.
Throughout the show, whilst dealing with different people, Aamir’s stardom didn’t arrest his connectivity with people. It’s surely not difficult for someone who understands the audience pulse like this!
The show becomes engaging as after each experience, the anchor (as the anchor in Aamir takes over the actor) gives away a silent message. What steals the thunder is Aamir’s ‘a step forward approach’. The actor known for his marketing skills doesn’t give away a golden chance to motivate his audience. He pushes them to not just watch the show and feel emotionally drained, but to also appeal to government to ask for more....being a human...
