Govt recognition for ‘Satyamev Jayate’

STAR India CEO Uday Shankar and Aamir Khan will be honoured by the National Commission for Scheduled Castes, Government of India, in recognition of their efforts to create awareness against social discrimination through the show ‘Satyamev Jayate’.

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.

Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde; Social, Justice and Empowerment Minister Mukul Wasnik; Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni; Chief Minister of Delhi Shiela Dixit and other political and civil society leaders, who have championed the cause of social equality, will attend the awards function.

Shankar is one of the leading speakers at exchange4media Conclave, presented by Jagran. The Conclave will take place on October 23 in Mumbai.

In its 13-week run, ‘Satyamev Jayate’ questioned social mores, helped shape mindsets and transcended borders to top popularity charts across the globe. It left an imprint on the minds of people with compelling tales from everyday life.
