Mumbai: ‘Satyamev Jayate’ is Aamir Khan’s first television project and the star says that the reality show will create history by becoming the first ever programme to go live simultaneously on a private channel and national broadcaster DD1.
‘This is for the first time in the Indian history that a show will also be showcased simultaneously on national television channel DD1. Besides, the show will be dubbed in four southern languages - Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Kannada. This show is being launched on a large scale,’ Aamir told reporters Friday here at the launch of the show's promo song.
‘Satyamev Jayate’ will go on air on Star Plus May 6.
‘I don't understand TRPs (Television Rating Points) and GRPs (Gross Rating Points). I have no idea how to calculate it! I don't care about TRPs. It is important to reach out to the Indian audiences. If viewers want to see, they will see or else it is up to them,’ added the 47-year-old.
Aamir feels that TV is a very powerful medium and added: ‘I had to make complete use of this medium. This is a baby step towards it.’
‘I cannot say I understand TV completely. I was earlier scared to go ahead with the project. I can only say I have made this show with complete honesty and without compromising on anything,’ the actor added.
