Aamir Khan’s TV show: Will you watch ‘Satyamev Jayate’ on a Sunday morning?

The actor’s first ever TV show, Satyamev Jayate, will be aired on Sundays at 11am

Aamir Khan, the actor-filmmaker known to do things differently, has lived up to this rep for his TV show as well. Not only for its marketing and content, but also its time slot. Titled Satyamev Jayate, the show will air on Sundays at 11am. Star Plus, the channel that will air it, wanted the prime time evening slot for what has the potential to be its biggest show after Kaun Banega Crorepati? Season 1 and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.

But Aamir being Aamir, coerced the channel’s powers-that-be claiming that the best time to telecast his talk show would be on Sunday mornings at 11 o’clock. We can almost imagine the TV company’s execs getting goosebumps on this request. I mean, who even wakes up at 11am on a Sunday, especially after the previous night’s partying? Also, Star has apparently spent Rs 6.25 crore on media buying for just the promos of the show. So obviously the channel will be worried about the returns.

But then Aamir gets what Aamir wants. Not for nothing is his biography titled I’ll Do It My Way, is it? :-) . Aamir reasons that since the entire family will be able to watch his show on a Sunday morning, he wants it timed for that slot. Not bad logic, considering iconic television epics like BR Chopra’s Mahabharat and Ramanand Sagar’s Ramayan, as also Mukesh Khanna’s Superman-esque Shaktimaan aired around the same time and have gone down in history as the most watched and popular shows on Indian television. But will the same logic work a couple of decades later, in today’s times, when viewership patterns and quality and availability of shows has evolved so much? Aamir is taking a huge risk – once again – and he knows it. We just hope it works!Subscribe to me on YouTube

  • Rinzin Dengkhim

    I love this new initiative specially the show will be airing on Doordharshan channel for the larger audience.
    I am definitely looking forward to see the show. It seems that Amir Khan has shot somewhere in Buddhist Monastery which is again a good initiative because it shows India is a secular country and respects other religion and ethnic groups. Brovo to Amir and his team. Best of Luck. By the way, I am a Tibetan but also a bollywood fan.

  • Gita Patel

    I am looking forward to seeing Satyamev Jayate. Something quite different. I do hope it has sub-titles in English for viewers outside India. Good Luck and Best Wishes.

    I watched the show on 6th May at night. The show was very heart touching. Mr. Amir you have taken up such a wonderful mission. My heartiest congratulations. I wish u all the best for your show and I am sure you will get success. I fully support you in your mission. I also know some of the Advisi couples who have three or four daughters but they did not have any regrets for having daughters. Though the parents are uneducated they are giving education to their daughters.Once again wish you all success in your mission.All Indians will be with u. With regards, Sulabha Joshi

    Dear Mr. Amir,
    It is really a magnificient effort to bring such a burning issue to the public of India. People generally get pleasure out of Chat show/game shows etc. But this is a nice & commendable effort. I really appreciate your concern for the society. I had respect for you as an actor but now it has increased lots & lots more as a human being and social reformer. Trully commednable effort.
    I wish you all the success in your effort & for your prosperity.

  • mahipal

    hellow sir
    Maine aapka show dekha bahot badiya hai ye kam shayad aapke siva aaur koi bollywood kalakar nahi kar sakta tha kyonki jo jagah youth mei aapki hai woh shayad aaur kisi ki nahi.
    Aap chahte to aaur koi bhi reality show kar shakte the lekin aapne ye show karke ye sabit kar diya ki aap hi mr.perfect hai jo aap kar sakte hai woh koi aaur nahi, ha aaur ek bat ye sab aapki tarif mat samajna mei aapko reality bata raha hun.
    Meine jab bhi aapka kam dekha ek alag hi hota hai isbar bhi aapne ye show karke bahot accha kam kiya hai muje visvas hai ki aap is mei jarur kamyab honge mera matlab ye show ki kamyabi nahi is desh ki samasyao ka nirakaran hai.
    Shayad hum pura desh na badal sake par jo aaj hamare desh ki jo halat hai usme is show ki wajah se 20% bhi hum badal sake to woh hamari bahot badi kamyabi hogi, meine kahi jagaho par aap ki jagah hum likha hai is ka matlab hai hum aapke sath hai. . . .

  • C.S.Yogini

    Dear Sir, This is Yogini from Mysore, Karnataka.First let me congratulate for the step u have taken as a reformer. The show “Satyamev Jayathe” – based on realities of the social evils,about child sexual abuse was heart rendering. Through the show we would not allow the people to sleep simply,we make them aware, thereby awakening. Pressurizing the government for making the law regarding child sexual abuse which was pending in the parliament was remarkable.I and my Family members,Colleagues support ur words beneath of our heart.Aamir, don’t stop just go ahead, this is very essential for the upliftment of the society. This show is enlightening on the victims, through this show we have to behead the evils from our society thereby spreading pure love………..

    we r always with u as ur Followers, Supporters………….

  • Naveen Kulshekar

    I did not saw the first episode but saw second and third.About the second I sent my comments,now these comments for third one.dowry system is an evil of every society that too todays modern world because today the girl study better than boy, earn better than boy.Once you marry a girl her earnings comes to her new house hence why should you demand dowry/give dowry?Kudos to Mr. Amir Khan I hope those who watch this serial will definately avoid such type of demanding dowry or gifts from girl.Because of this dowry system many of our poor girls did not get married.

  • Harsh Wardhan

    Amir Khan…Satyamev Jayate!! DOCTORS & CORRUPTION
    It was a
    mixed bag. First part was totally biased, other party was not given any
    chance to explain their side of the case. Husband of the lady who
    appeared in the first episode never got a chance to explain his side.
    poor fellow an ortho surgeon (in Fortis) has been chucked out from
    hospital & no channel is ready to listen him.
    Corruption in medical
    practice is quite rampant. Now even big hospitals are giving
    commissions as “{Incentive money”. I know Govt doctors getting kick
    backs from chemist shops outside the hospital. It is common to see
    Doctors going out on holidays with pharma companies providing the
    hospitality. A whole planeload of physicians is taken to Goa for a
    ????CME.
    Not all are corrupt & shouldn’t be painted with the same brush but there are many Blacksheeps all around us.
    Aamir Khan was a bit too dramatic.It was not a movie show

  • Dr Harsh Wardhan

    Mr Khan please make a programme on black money specially in movie world & specially D world & his money
