Satyamev Jayate in Telugu and Kannada
A Common Man Story Maker and Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is likely to meet Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot on Wednesday in connection with female foeticide cases highlighted by his TV reality show “Satyamev Jayate”. Khan in his programme “Satyamev Jayate” aired Sunday had highlighted the story of a sting operation done seven years back by two journalists to expose increasing female foeticide cases in four states – Madhya Pradesh,Gujarat, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.
Following the expose, the Rajasthan government had come down heavily on doctors who were involved in sex determination tests and abortions and started a probe against them. However, the doctors since then have either been promoted or have been cleared of the charges.
Aamir said in his show that he would appeal to the Rajasthan chief minister to get the cases against the doctors clubbed together and tried in a fast track court and appealed to viewers to support his signature campaign.
“Aamir has expressed his desire to meet the chief minister on May 9. The chief minister’s office is looking at the CM’s schedule on that day. Chances are high that he (Gehlot) would meet him,” said a senior official in the chief minister’s office.
Rajasthan has been in the news for increasing cases of female foeticide and female infanticide.
According to Census 2011, Rajasthan has 883 girls between the age of 0-6 for every 1,000 boys. The child sex ratio in 2001 was 909.
Alarmed over the state’s skewed sex ratio, the state government recently announced steps to curb pre-natal sex determination tests at ultrasound clinics.
Satyamev Jayate is the first show ever in the history of Indian Television to be aired simultaneously on a private channel network STAR and a national broadcaster Doordarshan. The show is also dubbed in several languages including three Indian southern languages viz., Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam, along with Marathi and Bengali. Apart from Star Plus, the show will also have simulcast on STAR World, STAR Utsav, STAR Pravah, STAR Jalsha, Asianet and STAR Vijay within the STAR Network and other channels including DD National and Eenadu TV. The show was also supposed to be dubbed into Kannada, but was however not broadcast in the language, due to a self-imposed and self-enforced ban by the Karnataka Government, which does not allow a dubbed version of any serial or movie to telecast in the state. The Kannada Film Industry, however, does approve Kannada remakes of the same. On the broadcast of the show, Aamir Khan commented, “This show is being launched on a large scale. I had to make complete use of this medium. This is a baby step in that direction.”
