Bollywood actor Aamir Khan along with his Satyamev Jayate team is going to talk to present their research at the parliament today. Rajya Sabha MP Shanta Kumar of the Bharatiya Janata Party, who heads the parliamentary standing committee on commerce, had invited Aamir to share the knowledge they gained while researching the episode on malpractices in the medical fraternity.
The expose brought brickbats 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 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.
