SATYAMEV JAYATE: Does Aamir Khan deserve a Bharat Ratna?

Bihar’s health minister wants the actor to be bestowed with India’s highest civilian award and seeks his support for Bitia Bachao campaign

Is Aamir Khan eligible for the India’s highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna? Bihar’s Health and Family Welfare minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey wants the honour for the actor-filmmaker, as he is very impressed with how Aamir presented the issue of female foeticide on the first episode of his TV show, Satyamev Jayate. But does Aamir deserve the award? Moreover, Choubey wants to rope in Aamir for the state’s campaign to save the girl child, titled ‘Save Bitia’ or ‘Bitia Bachao’, which is similar to campaigns by other Indian states like Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. The minister said, “We’ll soon contact Aamir Khan for the purpose.”

The episode on female infanticide met with an unprecedented response on May 6, with the Satyamev Jayate website (satyamevjayate.in/) crashing when the show was being aired. The impact of the show was such that several doctors and ultrasound clinics in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan were booked in immediate raids.  Further, there has been a crackdown on illegal sex determination cases across India. The most recent case is of an absconding doctor couple from Maharashtra, Dr Sudam Munde and Dr Saraswati Munde who fed aborted female foetuses to the dogs in their backyard.

Female infanticide has been rampant in certain parts of India. We agree that the eradication of the social evil as well as the reform process has been given a huge push by Aamir’s Satyamev Jayate. And it’s likely to continue to have an impact in the near future, with a few thousand female babies saved. But does that mean Aamir deserves a Bharat Ratna? After all, he is just doing a TV show and one wonders how long he will be able to follow up on the various issues he discusses. What do you think?

    Surely he does……..however idea behind his show to bring changes in our society. So the focus at the moment must be to put an end to the social brutalities.If that happens, then he has won his award. Have ministers thought on those lines yet?

    • santosh

      amir deserves Bharat Ratna not only for satyamev jayate;but also for his movies on social values such,mangal pande,laagan, tarazameepe,3 idiots etc all these movies give a unique message.And amir dont appologise to doctors,they are all worst than vultures infact vultures would feel insulted,I prepared to an open debate with them…

  • Souvik Mitra

    No one deserves Bharat Ratna more than he does at this moment.
    Yes he is doing just a tv show but I think that is more of a reason why he should be given Bharat Ratna.
    He is showing the country that you do not need to give your entire life always to save the country(off course it would be great if someone dedicates his whole life to serve the nation)but one can also do it through profession.
    This can motivate more people into doing something good for the country jut through his profession.
    And Aamir is doing a great job by awaring the nation of not only great problems but also making an attempt in eradicating them.
    My vote is for Aamir having the Bharat Ratna.

    • Aadi

      Very very well said souvik mitra, am impressed, Amir deserves BR

  • Mirza

    Yes, he is doing very gud job nd he is motivate country nd the issues he attempted was amazing so currently he deserve…

  • Vishal

    Aamir never and will never deserve for bharat ratna or any other indian award.
    Any show can not make a man noble for bharat ratna.
    If u wana give bharat ratna then sachin tendulkar is 100 time better than aamir

    • Bhavesh Tank

      dear vishal , first improve yr english language skill along with your one sided myopic thinking.

    • Tapan Parida

      Dear Vishal,

      How can you say that? Dont just take this show as others, try to see the effect and impact of the show then decide what you want to say. I know you are just biased and thats fine. You should be given a second chance to just think of it.

      Understand the show and feel it, if it is not worthy then put your comments.

    • honey walia

      vishal sir u need to look yourself in the mirror 100 times before say anything to others understand

    • Latisha

      you must be 10yrs old…your world must be based on cricket ground and who ever is winning is saving the world..good on you kiddo

  • Nikhil

    Amir married three women and his life is full of controversy he cant hide it behind a just tv show.

    So any contraversial man does not deserve any awart , and bharat ratna is very respectable.

    • eesha

      aamir married 2 women. the 2nd after divorcing the 1st. so whats your problem? if he cant live with his wife whats the matter in divorcing? hater

    • Bhavesh Tank

      Dear, M K Gandhi was once very severe on his wife & send her out of his home during a rainy night ( Ref. Autobiography – My Experiment with Truth ) So He also should not deserve what the accolades he is getting right now. Being judge wrong anybody on the basis of the decision he / she has to take in his/her personal life (without inquiring about the true story)is totally illogical thing & the belief that such persons can’t do their bit for the society is again mindless

    • honey walia

      par jo ameer ne kar dikhaya tum to vo bhi nahi kar sakte.

    • Latisha

      2 wives idiot, 2 wives…i bet u would be happy if he spilled acid on his first or maybe even burn her before he moves on with his life..i bet u think that would’ve been more respectable? As long as he achieves to bring awareness in what misery lies under and he helps to elevate the hopes in those in need of better India and world then no need to award him for that is beyond an award…if only you but knew!

      He is not hiding behind anything, he is living in his own reality..what are you doing with your life..living to prevent shame? good luck pleasing others who cant even please themselves.

  • neha yadav

    yes!he deserve a bharat ratna becog he z doing a very gud job for the benifit of our country.

    • sasankajyoti sharma

      actually amir khan is just an anchor in the tv show. the credit should go to star plus tv channel for its courage and the producer, writer and director for their intentions. how can u simply demand bharat ratna for an anchor only? i am surprised by your narrow thinking.

      • L

        His Idea to do this kind of a show luv..I don’t know if you know this but Aamir was approached 3-4 yrs ago to do TV show and he said not till it would benefit or showcase something worth watching. It took him a while to discuss back and forth to what the show should be about. With discussions he brought out these topics that linger in his mind, issues the common man and friends discuss with him as well as those who seek his help and thus the birth of this show…Anchor? what Anchor? this show is his baby all the way

      • sasankajyoti sharma

        It is very much important that the success of a show depends on the role played by its Anchor. I have revised my previous thinking. I am a flexible man. Whatever, I said is not a mark on a rock or a mile-stone.
        Please, pardon.

  • Sukhvir Chauhan

    yes he’s doing a fab job for the country nd specially for the girls

  • krrishu

    Best t.v show . sayad hmare desh ke leaders par iska asar ho.

  • eesha

    YES aamir deserves everything good. he is a wonderful man

  • aadi

    Ooh truely he deserves coz hez doing a divine job and motivating people to stop crime, hez using his profession, name, image for this good work, surely he might have saved 100′s of female babies since that ist episode, motivated 1000′s of youths to abide dovry and dozens of doctors for honest and dedicated duty. Does someone need to do more than that to fetch a BR, and hez still going big guns,, still counting, hez a true deserving person

  • ajnabee

    Amir and the whole team need to be felicitated. All the best at least he got the guts to get out of the entertainment box and do something serious and show it to the nation through the most watched media in India the television…he did not do another dance show, or a bigboss or singing competion where millions are spent just for the sake of entertainment…and life is not only about songs n dance as we all know…where there is a rose there is thorn but often people only see the rose n they refuse to c that behind the beauty of a rose there a thorn as well and many time people get hurt with the thorns to get someone a rose……ponder…

    • Belle

      Didn’t expect a tv show made so smartly, intelligently and carefully well made, and which is of course great with positive effects.

  • palak mahecha

  • sasankajyoti sharma

    Satyamev Jayete is an excellent program in today’s context of developing India. Will India be a developed one in future if India continues to be so as depicted in episodes. The people of India should change for the greater interest of humanity and country.
    Thanx.

  • D R JOSHI

    Amir khan efforts are RIGHT THINKING AT RIGHT TIME, at present in INDIA there is no RIGHT MOTIVATOR, as was during 60 year back, People have lost there confidence on present POLITICIAN AND SO CALL LEADERS
    Every one is exploitation, in the name of religion.cast and imposing them self MR CLEAN but to be true no one is thinking about INDIA and it’s image in outside
    Now there are two type of INDIAN
    ONE WHO ARE IN INDIA i.e POLITICIAN, AND SO CALL LEADERS
    ONE WHO FEEL THAT THE ARE INDIAN i.e GENERAL CITIZEN OF INDIA ,But deprived of all there right except FORCE VOTING AS PER SITUATION OF THE LOCALITY THEY ARE RESIDING
    SO FRIEND SUCH AN EFFORT BY AMIR KHAN PRAISEWORTHY
    BUT IT LIKE DISCUSSION ON A COFFEE TABLE WHICH END WHEN CUPS
    ARE EMPTY
    WE NEED A LATE GANDHI BAPU FOR MOBILIZATION OF THE THOUGHTS THEN THE SHOW WILL BE SUCCESSFUL
    BUT I MUST SAY AMIR YOU ARE DOING BEST EFFORTS

  • Latisha

    I know Aamir Khan deserves the Bharat Ratna award. The issues his show deals with did not come from international communities but created just for India because there is need for better and more human friendly India for the near future and awareness of the current issues facing the average Indian need to be outed and addressed. I also believe the idea behind such a show must have been 100% from Aamir himself, so yes, I believe the Bharat Ratna should be given to him as well as specially made recognition award for just Aamir Khan..God bless his efforts.

  • Latisha

    I believe for so many prayers God has finally answered all those Indians who prayed while suffering in the hands of their own and He send Aamir..slowly but truly Aamir’s affect would forever change India and why just India? I am not an Indian and live all the way in Australia and I feel the effect of what a young man in India created would change the world for the better..

    May the Almighty reward him handsomely

  • Devi Krishna

    Yes of course.what all non sense some people have written.If he don’t want that wife there may be any strong matter behind that.Not only that how can you compare this with his family.So don’t do that.You are an awesome person Aamirji.We love you a lot.
