Aamir Khan specially screens Satyamev Jayate in villages

Aamir Khan‘s much awaited TV debut Satyamev Jayate premieres today. The show will be telecast in over 100 countries around the world, but sadly, not in Karnataka.
After months of hype and curiosity, D-day has finally arrived for ’s first TV show, . The first episode of the non-fiction talk show will air today at 11 am across eight channels on the Star TV network, including four regional language channels which will feature dubbed versions. It will also be aired on national broadcaster .To make sure the show reaches people in remote areas who don’t own TV sets, the actor will hold special public screenings of the first episode for them on community TV sets in their villages. Bhingara and Kahupatta in Maharashtra, Jhunkar in Madhya Pradesh and Khannapurwa, Lalpur Sarauta and Maaniram in Uttar Pradesh are some of the chosen villages.

“It is a relevant show for the whole country and we are making sure that it reaches out to all Indians, even in places with limited or no TV connectivity,” says Gayatri Yadav, marketing and communications, Star India. Based on the response to the first episode, Star will consider screening subsequent episodes of the show in this manner as well.

Telecom brand Airtel, Satyamev Jayate’s sponsor, has reduced the cost of SMS responses to the show from Rs. 3 to Rs. 1. Also, reports say that the revenue collected via and from caller tunes of the show’s title track will be donated to charity.

Aamir’s dream to reach out to every Indian might hit a roadblock however. Recent news reports have said that has banned the show from being aired because of a state policy that disallows dubbed versions of non-Kannada serials on regional channels. At the time of goin to print, Star TV officials were trying to work out a solution.

  6. I don’t leave a great deal of responses, but i did some searching and wound up here Aamir Khan specially screens Satyamev Jayate in villages | kracktivist. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it simply me or does it seem like some of the remarks look as if
    they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if
    you are writing at additional places, I’d like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
