The Commission will felicitate Shankar and Khan at an award function being organised to mark the International Valmiki Day in New Delhi on October 18.

“Satyamev Jayate was a natural evolution of content, given STAR’s steadfast and widening focus on socially relevant issues, this recognition will spur us to advance in this path of leveraging the power of TV to act as a change agent,” said Shankar.
