Harish Iyer's name does not need any introduction. He got famous after the broadcast of Aamir Khan's Satyamev Jyate's episode on child sexual abuse.
In an interview to DNA, Harish talked about his experience on the show. He said, “I am just amazed. It’s beyond words… and I mean it… the whole experience was electrifying to say the least. What really surprised me was people approaching me a few hours after the airing… asking me if I could pose with them. I feel like a star already! Like that’s not enough… Aamir Khan actually called me to check on me. He even asked me if I thought the editing was done well and the likes. He’s just far too amazing!"
Harish further added, "Aamir’s warmth and genuine concern also helped me open up about several things, things even my amma didn’t know about."
Talking about the overwhelming response Harish got while shooting for the episode, Harish said, “The audience was amazing. We actually shot this one episode over almost a whole day and the intensity that you saw on screen was only one tenth of what actually transpired on those sets. Aamir Khan was in tears on many occasions and we had to stop for little breaks for the emotionally charged audience.”
Well, Aamir Khan and his Satyamev Jayate team have won our hearts by handling such a sensitive topic in a very subtle manner. Hats off once again!!
