Mumbai, Aug 9 (IANS) Actor Imran Khan believes his uncle Aamir Khan's TV show Satyamev Jayate, which brought social issues to the fore, has had a great impact on the society.
It has had an impact... Some people, of course don't agree with what he is saying or doing.
But they are talking about it, the 29-year-old said here.
The 13-episode show, aired on Star Plus, ended July 29. It touched upon sensitive issues like female foeticide, education, dowry and corruption in the medical field.
He has raised issues which people were not previously talking about. It has raised issues to a national level. I don't think there can be a bigger impact than this, he added.
Following the success of the first season, a second season is in the pipeline.
Meanwhile, Imran is shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola.
Sophie upset with singers' condition
Actor-singer Sophie Choudry is upset with the condition of singers in the country. Comparing the scenario to international singers, she says singers here are always considered secondary to actors.
In our industry, actors are considered to be bigger stars than singers. But if you look at the international level, sometimes singers are much bigger stars than actors and they have a much bigger fan following, the 31-year-old said here.
Sophie blames lack of promotion for music other than Bollywood, for the problem.
We all know that in the last four to five years, all kinds of music, except film music, have not been getting a platform. Media does not promote it, radio channels don't play them. This makes it very difficult for musicians to express themselves, she added.
She also rues how a song is recognised by an actor's name first and then the singer's name is taken.
