Aamir Khan's popular TV show, "Satyamev Jayate" is all geared up for the new season, which will see the presence of some popular figures including Bollywood celebs, speaking about various social issues.
Khan has reportedly invited Bollywood celebs, including Parineeti Chopra, Kangana Ranaut and Deepika Padukone, for one of the episodes that will discuss about women empowerment.
"There will be some celebrities on the show this time. There will be top stars from the industry for some episodes. They are there on the show not because they are celebrities but they are related to the issue...they will be contributing for the show. We don't want to use this (presence of celebs) as publicity for the show. There is a reason for them to be on the show...it is not for promotion," IBN Live quoted Khan during the launch event of third season of "SatyamevJayate", that was held recently.
Unlike the first two seasons, the upcoming season will have Khan communicate with the viewers live and connect with them through social media platforms, like Facebook and Twitter. Suggestions made by people regarding the issue discussed in an episode will be taken into consideration.
The 49-year-old actor-host mentioned that since 2012, when the first season was telecasted, it has transformed him and his public image as people don't figure him has an actor alone but as a person working for the upliftment of the society.
"People don't look at me as an actor alone. I remember when I was shooting for 'PK' in Rajasthan the media there did not ask any questions about 'Dhoom 3', which was about to release. They did not even ask me why I was in Rajasthan...they asked me only about 'Satyamev Jayate'," said the "PK" actor.
"That time I realised they (media) don't have interest in my film career and time has come for me to retire. This makes me realise that people don't look at me as an actor alone. Through my profession I touch people's heart through stories. And using this (the show), I try to bring change in society." he added.
The TV show has garnered overwhelming responses in the past two seasons highlighting some of the nation's social issues and discussing possible solutions. The first two seasons focused on issues like female foeticide, dowry, domestic violence, sexual abuse of children, casteism, medical malpractice and water crisis among others.
However, the actor didn't wish to reveal any further details of the third season of "Satyamev Jayate", which will go on air from 21 September on Star Plus channel.
