But Kiran feels sad that she couldn’t be a part of the show
Filmmaker and superstar Aamir Khan’s wife Kiran Rao says the actor’s new TV show Satyamev Jayate has made life tough for her as he has started bringing work home. “This show has made my jeena haram (life tough) on many levels because Aamir has worked on the show night and day and in my house,” the 38-year-old said. “So my house has been full of writers and people from Star (Plus), and Aamir and they have all the big team in my house day and night. So, I am waiting for the show to come on air and slowly, hopefully my life will also go back to normal,” she added.
Satyamev Jayate will go on air on Star Plus on May 6. The concept of the show has been kept under wraps, but its theme song is receiving a positive response. Rao also admits to being in love with it. “Satyamev Jayate is an amazing song. I really loved it and they went all over the country to shoot it, which was really exciting,” she said, adding that she regrets not being a part of the show.
“(I was) Very sad that I couldn’t be a part of his show. It’s been such a journey for Aamir. The promos I hope reached out to the people and people will watch the show,” she said.
Satyamev Jayate will mark Aamir’s debut on the small screen. It is unique as it will be the first ever programme to go live simultaneously on a Star Plus and national broadcaster DD1.
While Aamir has been busy with the show, Rao has been spending time with their five-month-old son Azad (who was included in one of the promos of Satyamev Jayate without Kiran’s knowledge). She says motherhood is keeping her away from starting anything new. “I am actually going to begin writing something. I hope I have the head space to start writing. I am still very much a full-time mother hoping to find the space to work and write something new,” said Rao, who became a mother in December last year through surrogacy. Her last film as producer was Delhi Belly and she made her directorial debut with Dhobi Ghat.
