He has always tried to make his projects unique. So it’s hardly surprising that Aamir Khan is going all out to keep everything related to his maiden TV show, Satyamev Jayate, under wraps. As a result, no one is aware of the format or treatment of what’s believed to be a talk show with a twist. Now,
even as Aamir gets ready to launch the title song today, suspense continues to enshroud the number.
“Like the show, the song has also been completely kept under wraps and will be revealed only today. Besides Aamir, a very small group is aware of what the song sounds like. Almost everyone from the show’s core creative team is also being kept in the dark. But as far as we know, it’s being called a love song for the country, and has been shot all over India, over a period of three months, while he was working on the episodes,” says an insider from the show’s unit.
For the uninitiated, Aamir has travelled extensively over several weeks to various places in Rajasthan, Kashmir, Kerala, Delhi, Punjab and several North-Eastern states. “The title song’s video will show bits and pieces from all the places he has visited. The idea is to give a basic feel of what the show is going to be like. Aamir has personally worked hard on the entire song and its video,” says the insider.
While Aamir wasn’t available for a comment, his spokesperson confirms: “The song will be launched today. It will be called Satyamev Jayate. We can’t reveal anything else at the moment.” Interestingly, the invite sent out to media, too, doesn’t reveal anything about the song and the show. As reported earlier, Aamir and music director Ram Sampath of Delhi Belly (2011) fame have created roughly 16 songs to go with each of the episodes. Later, the actor will also launch a music album once the show comes to an end.
