Amir Khan is honored for ‘Satyamev Jayate’.

You must not have forgotten the immense response that superstar Amir Khan’s social awareness television program ‘Satyameva Jayate’ had got from the audience. Overnight, the serial became one of the most famous TV series that made the audience to be in tears even! And hardly anyone we suppose, can forget this colossal contribution of Amir to the society.

For his great work , Amir along with Star India CEO Uday Shankar, was rewarded by the National Commission for Scheduled Castes at a function in New Delhi on Thursday. Amir, after etting the prize went too ecstatic and expressing his happiness said, “I feel very special today. I am humbled with the kind of love, respect and support that you people have given to me. This honour is not just for me, but also for my team who worked so hard on the show that we were able to understand it and present it to all of you.”

The 47-year-old actor had refered to the concern of social inequity and physical foraging in one of the episodes of his debut TV show “Satyamev Jayate”, where he emphasized on the life of more than 300,000 manual scavengers, who clean excreta even today and are measured as untouchables in the society.

Talking his experience on initiating the TV program ‘Satyameva Jayate,’ Amir said, “When we decided to start ‘Satyamev Jayate’, we thought of bringing up issues which people usually don’t talk about on public platforms. I felt bad to know that even after 65 years of independence, social discrimination is still prevalent. I felt so bad that I decided that I have to raise this issue in my show.”

Also he forgot not to mention the threats that he had faced before starting the serial and said, “People told me that this is a very sensitive issue and I can get caught in court cases, but I was adamant on bringing it on the show. I was really happy to see the response from people. I got so many emails and letters, especially from the younger generation, who said they felt bad about the current scenario and that they would work towards welfare (of society).”

Yes, he is right! We can never forget the response that his popular tv serial had got and we also congratulate Aamir on his grand success.
