SJ is Aamir’s baby, completely: Satyajit Bhatkal

With just two day to go for the launch of Satyamev Jayate, the show has created much curiosity among everyone. The industry’s well-kept secret is Aamir Khan’s maiden entry into the small screen.


Talking about the show, Satyajit Bhatkal, director of the show, told MxMIndia that although the team has been working on the show for over two years, the concept is very old. “The idea of something like the show has been on Aamir’s mind for over years now. It is his baby completely. Along with his small team which I’m part of, Aamir worked on it for many years. And only when the idea of clear did we approach the channel which again added to the concept.” The channel, Star Plus, will air the show on May 6 at 11 am.


It’s a known fact that Aamir is a perfectionist so it won’t be a surprise if he wasn’t involved in every aspect of the show. “He was there at every moment of the show. Even today he’s here. A lot of attention has been given to details and extensive research was done to produce the show,” said Bhatkal.


Speaking on the morning slot of a Sunday morning, the director laughed and said, “It’s only in the metros that we tend to laze around on a Sunday morning. Most of the country is up and about early. So, I don’t think the morning slot should be an issue.”


Like everyone else, the director too is keeping his fingers crossed about the show he described as ‘nothing ever seen before on TV’ and hopes to reach out to every Indian. “It’s not always entertainment which might click with people; we are hoping that our show will be able to garner people’s interest for long and good.”

    Getting the show in being is ur idea which is so appreciated by the people today of country . Not it is for entertainment purpose , it needs we people to think on it and do our bit . But , the way it is presented and hosted applause to you and the crew . Aamir sir , is the life of the show , very sensitive . If a show can make youngsters like us google other than phones or chatting stuff , google about you or view ur site this means it connects a straight chord with one and all.

    ya, as u all said it is very right, but one thing is really sure that aamir khan is going to hit this too & communicate the social aspects among public, for which no one is the best against him in this world.
