The last episode of Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate was aired on Sunday featuring issues seldom discussed on mainstream entertainment channels. The TV show which focused on several social issues from female foeticide to child sexual abuse, medical malpractice to untouchability, from organic food to the water crisis in the country will be back with a second season.
Uday Shankar, CEO, Star India, confirmed that the channel was keen to take the show ahead. He told us, “The intent of the show was to use the power and platform of television to drive change. This show has disrupted every convention of programming, format, delivery and marketing. It is a testimony to the power of innovation to challenge convention and rewrite the rules of the game. But, the real impact of the show is in the awareness it has created and the lives it has changed. We are keen to take this show forward.”
