Gangtok: April 16, 2012
Aamir Khan’s first television project Satyamev Jayate will have one full episode on organic farming in Sikkim. Sikkim is on its way to become totally organic and out of the cultivable land of 58,168 hectares, about 8,168 hectares had already been certified as organic by accredited institutions.
No one is aware of the format or treatment of Satyamev Jayate, what’s believed to be a talk show with a twist. The actor kept mum about the concept of the show but our sources tell us that it is going to be a reality show with a difference. The show will feature such inspirational stories that can set an example for the whole country. The show will also feature unsung heroes of social change from all over the country.
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 at the launch of the show’s promo song.
Aamir had recently visited Sikkim and other Northeast States to shoot for his Satyamev Jayate. He was in Gangtok in February with a 16 member team. That time he had not reveled about his plan to shoot for his television show and kept the whole procedure under wraps.
Now if our sources are to be believed then the episode on Sikkim will show the world about Sikkim’s flight of Organic Farming and will definitely set an example for other parts of India.
Sikkim is working towards becoming a fully organic state over the next two years, hoping to create a space for its produce in national and international markets. Organic cultivation is also expected to enhance Sikkim’s growing home-stay tourism.
Satyamev Jayate will go on air on Star Plus and DD1 on May 6.
