‘Satyamev Jayate’ impact: Aamir Khan to meet parliamentary panel

The actor has been invited by the panel to discuss his insight into medical malpratices, which he highlighted on his TV show Satyamev Jayate

A parliamentary panel has invited actor Aamir Khan, who exposed malpractices in the medical sector on his Satyamev Jayate TV programme, for an interaction on the issue. He will appear Thursday morning with his team. Rajya Sabha MP Shanta Kumar of the Bharatiya Janata Party, who heads the parliamentary standing committee on commerce, has invited the actor to share the knowledge they gained while researching the episode. Aamir’s spokesperson confirmed that he will be there Thursday morning to interact with the panel.

Aamir, 47, lifted the veil from the malpractices in the medical profession through his maiden TV show Satyamev Jayate and discussed issues like doctors taking cuts and other unethical medical practices. He presented live examples of people who could have been cured with simple medicines but were advised by doctors to undergo surgeries, robbing them of precious money. Broadcast on May 27, the well-researched episode also addressed issues like overpricing of life-saving drugs. The expose brought brickbacks and criticism from the Indian Medical Association (IMA), which wanted Aamir to apologise. But he said his conviction in the concept and aim of the show have left him fearless of negative reactions.

Satyamev Jayate, which marks the Bollywood’s thinking actor’s entry into the field of television, has so far discussed issues like female foeticide, child sex abuse, dowry and domestic violence. In fact, parliament has only now passed a bill on stringent action against those guilty of child sex abuse.

The actor has struck the right chord with the audiences as people are watching the show with great interest. Aamir says this is his way of contributing to society by creating awareness.
