Aamir Khan’s first TV show will bring real stories and emotions of people on the small screen and will be telecast in eight languages
After Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, it’s Aamir Khan’s turn to make his debut on the small screen. The actor will be seen in a yet-to-be titled show which he calls his “most ambitious project”. The production of the show is yet to start and it will go on air next year. It is being jointly produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Star India. “This show is my most ambitious project. This began as a dream some three-four years ago. Uday (Shanker of Star) coaxed me with the idea that I should think of dominating television now. That is how the spark ignited. After that meeting I actually started thinking about it passionately,” Aamir said.
“I have been offered game shows before, but I didn’t find them very exciting… not that they were not good but personally doing the same thing everyday didn’t excite me much. So that is how I started to think and brainstorm for an innovative concept. Moreover, I have realised in all these years that TV is a very strong and powerful medium and I should make use of this platform to reach larger audience,” he added.
The show will bring real stories and emotions of people on the small screen and for the 46-year-old actor-filmmaker, it is a dream come true. ”Honestly I take time to make up my mind and it’s like a dream come true for me. I have been living it and breathing it during all these years,” said Aamir.
Uday Shankar, CEO Star India, calls it a pan-India show. It will be telecast in eight different languages. “It’s a pan-India show. The show has been woven around Aamir, it is his vision. He did not want language to act as a barrier, he said ‘I want all your regional channels for this show’,” Shanker said.
