“We thought we should start Satyamev Jayate Season 2 from where we left Satyamev Jayate Season 1. It’s also that we get so much inspiration from Dashrath Manjhi’s story that we thought we will start the show with it. Let people criticise us, laugh at us or say I am doing it for publicity, we will stick to our thoughts,” said Aamir Khan who went and met Manjhi’s family in Gahlaur village.
However Aamir is not ready to talk about the other issues that he will highlight on his show.
“The idea of keeping it hidden is that we don’t have an agenda or something because these are strong social political topics. If I would tell you what the topic is before the show comes, you may not watch it. You may think it’s boring. Because you don’t know what the topic is, you all will sit and watch and then you will feel, ‘Thank God I saw it’,” stated a very confident Aamir Khan.
Aamir Khan returns with the second edition of his talk show and says that his show is for those who love their nation and said it has all the ingredients to keep his audiences interested, irrespective of TRP’s.
“The TRP game doesn’t make any sense at all. The Indian population is around 120 crore (1.2 billion) and you have just 7,000 sets (to record the ratings). On that basis you will tell me what people are watching, then tell me how funny it is. So I have detached myself from TRP’s. I don’t believe in 7,000 boxes. I am just not interested in TRP’s, so I am not rating the success or failure of my show on the basis of TRP’s. We have based the success of our show on ground reactions.” said Aamir.
However, the format of Satyamev Jayate Season 2 will be slightly different for its previous season, as it would be divided into three parts.
“The format is the same, but the only difference is that we have divided the show into three parts. We will have thirteen to fourteen episodes but it will be divided into three parts. We are taking three months in a year. It will be a month of Satyameva Jayate. Now we have made our website more vibrant and dynamic. For example, if there are five Sundays in March, on all Sundays you can see the show.” informed Aamir.
Satyamev Jayate Season 2 has got the same slot as the previous season and it will go on air on March 02, 2014 at 11:00 am on various channels of Star Network.
Here’s wishing Aamir Khan and team Satyamev Jayate all the best!!
