Aamir Khan’s TV show — Satyamev Jayate created enough buzz when it was announced in 2012. The content and presentation of the show got a huge thumbs up for both its seasons — aired in 2013 and 2014; five episodes of the second were aired earlier in March. Interestingly, Star India has sold the rights of the show to a production company in China.
“When we did the first season of Satyamev Jayate, we got inquiries from many parts of Asia and Africa. But the country from where we saw the maximum interest was China and we have just sold the rights of the show to a production company in China,” Star India CEO Uday Shankar was quoted as saying at a session organised by the Paley Media Centre.
For the time being, however, the channel is not revealing any more details about the deal. A spokesperson from the channel said that Shankar is not in India, and the details will be only revealed once he is back.
However, at the session Shankar mentioned that if it were not for the support from 21st Century Fox co-COO James Murdoch, the show would not have happened.
The second part of the second season of the show is under production and can be expected soon.
