aamir khan's satyamev jayateActor Imran Khan believes his uncle Aamir Khan's TV show "Satyamev Jayate", which brought social issues to the fore, has had a great impact on the society.

"It has had an impact... Some people, of course don't agree with what he is saying or doing. But they are talking about it," the 29-year-old said here.

The 13-episode show, aired on Star Plus, ended July 29. It touched upon sensitive issues like female foeticide, education, dowry and corruption in the medical field.

"He has raised issues which people were not previously talking about. It has raised issues to a national level. I don't think there can be a bigger impact than this," he added.

Following the success of the first season, a second season is in the pipeline.

Meanwhile, Imran is shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola".

    - Suggested solution
    - People working towards improvement.

    Well done Mr Amir Khan!

    Satyamev Jayate really brought out so many issues happening around our country ...Felt very bad at the same time happy to see so many brave people helping others nd respecting each other.

    Aamir Khan , the perfectionist did a great job to show the young generation wht s our country like??How to improve alot further??

    How we are separated due to religion, caste etc...learnd abt cleanliness goes on.

    The episode which made cry nd feel shame was the manual scavenges episode...


    Waiting for second season***
