We expected Aamir Khan's Satyamev Jayate 2 to kick off on a serious note, with an episode that shakes our souls.
Kicking off the second season of his much-talked about show Satyamev Jayate on Sunday by taking up the grave issue of rapes in India, Aamir Khan lived up to our expectations.
Sporting a black blazer, the 48-year-old actor began the episode by recalling the horrific December 16 Delhi gangrape case, which shook the nation.
"When the first season of our show got over, a terrible incident took place, December 16 Delhi gangrape case. The incident shook the nation. It affected people's thinking, especially youngsters, who thought it was just too much to bear and took part in protests aiming to bring justice to the victim," Aamir said on the show.
Aamir also talked about the case of two girls from different backgrounds, who were also raped once, but they started their life again with courage and decided not to hide their identity on the show.
The show also got a thumbs up on social-networking sites with Satyamev Jayate being the most trended topic among the users.
