Bollywood actor Aamir Khan visited the village of Dasrath Manjhi, also known as mountain man, who single-handedly carved out a 360-foot-long passage cutting through Gehlore Mountain in Gaya district of Bihar, for his upcoming second season of reality show ‘Satyamev Jayate’. The actor also met family members of Manjhi. The ‘mountain man’ died of cancer at the age of 80 at All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi on August 17, 2007. According to villagers, Manjhi decided to carve the road through the mountain in 1967 when his wife got injured while climbing the mountain.
