Aamir Khan is one of the most loved superstars of the country.
However, this man, known as Mr. Perfectionist for his knack of perfection of character in the movies, has been under a major controversy off late.
Be it his comments on the intolerance in India or be it his controversial movies such as PK, which has ignited the crowds against him, the superstar is in a major trouble off late.
Aamir, however, is still a perfectionist, and in times of trouble he is starting off with something for which he was most appreciated for.
His run with the TV was quite successful as was one of the most popular shows, and presented many socio economical problems in a light that they had never been presented in the past.
While many dismissed it as Aamir Khan’s PR campaign, Satyamev Jayate returning to the television screens is indeed a huge deal.
There has rarely been such a phenomenon since the days of the classic Mahabharata or the Ramayana on Doordarshan which have had people across the country glued to the TV Screen.
Aamir has indeed taken a very smart move here and is expected to earn goodwill with this.
In this new season of Satyamev Jayate, Aamir will be talking about the water problem in Maharashtra, as well as other areas.
“The topic of water problems will be tackled in this season of ‘Satyamev Jayate’, especially the problems related to Maharashtra,” Aamir said at a press conference held to announce the ‘Satyamev Jayate Water Cup’.
According to Aamir, he felt that the response to the show has been really strong, and they now need to focus on one topic for the entire series so that maximum awareness and maximum impact take place for that one particular social issue.
Between the 15th of April to the 31st of May, a competition will be organized between villages, where the villages would be asked to save water.
The village that can conserve the maximum amount of water will be winning the Satyamev Jayate water cup, and will be awarding the winning village with Rs. 50 lakh via the Aamir Khan and KiranRao owned NGO, Paani Foundation.
“I will not be the only face, we will have Sachin Tendulkar and many Marathi celebrities. All of us are the face of this project,” Aamir further commented.
