Actor Aamir Khan has proved once again that he is the best in the business with his TV debut show "Satyamev Jayate" receiving great response from various social classes.
Ths show got such a overwhelming response that the official website crashed due to huge traffic, according to official sources.
Speaking to Trans World Features (TWF) correspondent Sreya Basu about the success of the TV talk show, Aamir Khan said, "I don't know about people's response. But this much I can say that I have got a huge opportunity to learn about life through this show."
The 47-year-old actor travelled to various villages in the country for two years to shoot 13 episodes of the show.
"May be I could have never faced them had I not agreed to do this TV show," Aamir said.
Talking about his "enriching" experience while shooting all over India, he said, "I cry easily, so when things touched my heart, I cried. And when I was inspired and happy, I cried."
On the first day of the show which was aired simultaneously on Star Plus and Doordarshan at 11 am, Aamir hosted a series of discussions with experts and victims of female foeticide.
"When you become a star, a celebrity, it becomes difficult to roam around freely and meet people. In a way, you get detached from people. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to connect with people and meet them at a close level," he told Sreya.
"There are so many inspirational people in our country, that too at the grassroots level. In a true sense, Satyamav Jayate has been a journey for life for me...it has been an enriching experience. This journey made Aamir aamir (rich) in real sense," he added.
The program which is being co-produced by Aamir Khan Productions and Star India is based on common people and the actor is not looking for any revenue from the show.
"I don't care about TRPs (Television Rating Points). I want to reach people's hearts via this show because unless something reaches your heart tab tak baat nehin banti," said Aamir.
"I have tried to connect to as many people I can. I chose television because it's probably a medium via which I can convey what I have to say. Now it's up to the people whether they will watch the show or switch off the TV, the actor added.
