MUMBAI: The much anticipated TV debut of Aamir Khan in ‘Satyamev Jayate’ set to air on 6th May, will be missed out on by residents of Karnataka.

The State of Karnataka has chopped off ‘Satyamev Jayate’ from its television schedules in a self-imposed ban. This is due to the policy to ban all dubbed serials or movies in the State.  The Kannada Film Industry only approves Kannada remakes of serials and movies in any other language, but not the dubbed ones.

President of Karnataka Television Association, Ravi Kiran, quoted, “Out of 58 serials on air every day, you have so much production, post-production etc. So many people are involved, and they depend on this. Once dubbing comes, half the programmes will be imported. All actors will become dubbing actors.”

However, residents of the State are furious with this policy, and believe that the serial should be made available in all languages.
