Superb impact of the show! Even Harish Iyer said how Satyamev Jayate made masses aware of this issue and played a major role in passing of the bill for protection of children against sexual offenses. Salute to Aamir Khan for using his star status in positive direction! And to STAR for utilising their reach so well. It's not just a TV show, it's a movement!
