Just like Satyamev Jayate, Salman Khan’s Mission Sapne is also about the common man. Off what we have heard, each episode of Mission Sapne would have a celebrity who would be leading the life of a common man for a day and give the earnings to the common people whose life he would be leading.
“I am very happy Salman is doing this kind of a show. I wish more people from industry come and support it (social issues),” stated Aamir Khan.
Aamir Khan, on the other hand has dedicated 2014 to Satyamev Jayate and said that his monetary earnings from the programme are not as what people thing it should be, but he is enriched by the experience of meeting different people.
There were reports that Aamir Khan was not charging anything for the show but the actor said, “I do take money for the show. I think I should take money for the work I do. I used to earn more money through commercials but I don’t do a lot of commercials now. If I look at it financially and commercially, then I am earning less. But my earning is more in another way, like meeting people from various walks of life, touching their lives. I feel enriched,” Aamir told reporters.
Satyamev Jayate has been one of the most influential television shows in the recent times. The first season saw Aamir Khan raising some sensitive topics like female foeticide, child sexual abuse, medical malpractice, dowry system, love marriages and honour killings among others.
In the second season, which kicked off on March 02, 2014 issues like rape and police reforms were raised. Aamir Khan, however, has been tight lipped about the subjects, which would be highlighted in the upcoming episodes.
Here’s wishing both Aamir and Salman all the best.
