New Delhi: After the overwhelming response that the first episode got, Aamir Khan is back with the second episode of 'Satyamev Jayate'. The first episode dealt with the issue of female foeticide and how the problem persists across all sections of the society. If reports are to be believed then the second episode is going to deal with the problem of child abuse.
The makers showcased several examples to make their point. Aamir's presence on the show grabbed initial eyeballs. One of the most successful TV debut by any Bollywood actor, Aamir Khan's 'Satyamev Jayate' received very high rating points.
It also compelled states such as Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh to take action against the doctors and people involved in the business of sex detection and female foeticide.
Aamir is back with the second episode of \'Satyamev Jayate\'. Will the second episode be as successful as the first?
The show was not free of controversies either. Singer Palash Sen of the Euphoria band accused the composer of 'Satyamev Jayate' of plagiarism.
Aamir Khan is known as a thinking actor. He has contributed in some public movements in the past. His presence in Narmada Bachao Movement and Anti-corruption Movement made headlines, but this is the first time when he has become so open about any cause.
Will the second episode generate the same kind of response among the common viewers or will it start to lose its charm as many other initiatives of the past?
