The fact that actor-producer Aamir Khan hosts a TV show like Satyamev Jayate, where startling facts and cases about societal issues are picked, scares his mother.

The second season of the show is due to go on air on Star Plus March 2.

The debut season created quite a flutter as Aamir unraveled facts and figures about issues such as female foeticide, dowry demands, the skewed sex ratio in the country and the likes.

He says he gets a sense of the varied response to the show through his family. "My family gives different reactions while watching the show. All my family members like the show. My mother is close to 80, and my niece and nephew who are 12 and 13 years old, enjoy the show equally," Aamir said.

"My mother is scared...her reaction is different. She says, 'You are showing people who do wrong, with the right intention', but she says she is scared that what if those people go against me or harm me. After all, she is a mother, so she is scared," he added.

There have been reports that Aamir has been receiving threat calls, but he said: "I have only been receiving love from people and no threat calls these are just rumours."
