Ahead of Dangal release, Amir Khan plans Maha-Episode of Satyamev Jayate focusing on tolerance

Mumbai: After looking at the box office report of Dilwale and review ratings of Barkha Dutt’s book, stakeholders of movie Dangal are feeling like the Cows sitting in the moving conveyor belt of a ‘Intolerant’ slaughterhouse.

More painful is the realization that the belt was set in motion by their own co-producer and lead actor Aamir Khan.

However, our sources have informed that Aamir Khan has just found an ‘Emergency Brake’ that will save them from becoming ‘Beef’ at box office. For starters Aamir Khan has issued the clarification on his ‘Intolerance’ remark.

Going forward he plans to produce an emotional tear filled episode of Satyamev Jayate, sponsored by SnapDeal where Aamir will present lofty examples of ‘Tolerance’ shown by common people from various parts of India.

Shaitaan Khopdi™ asked Aamir about what made him shoot for a fresh new SMJ episode when he is already busy with Dangal’s shooting.

Aamir said, “Bas ye samajh lo ki Dil pe lagi, to bat bani” while signing ‘SnapDeal – Ye hai Dil ki Deal’ ad contract with revised terms and conditions emphasizing on what a brand ambassador should avoid saying in public.

Through this SMJ Maha-Episode, Aamir Khan will try to erase the memory of his controversial talk show which was held in November 2015. Aamir will also include some of his own dialogs to improve his image drive home the point, such as:

  • Main apne mulk ko apna ghar samajhta hoon. – Sarfarosh
  • Phir kabhi kisi Salim se mat kehna … yeh mulk uska ghar nahi – Sarfarosh
  • Koi bhi desh perfect nahi hota, use perfect banana padta hai. –RangDeBasanti

Readers may recollect that Aamir Khan sparked national outrage last year when he told, that his wife fears for his kids and is thinking to leave India. Since the occasion was to celebrate Ramnath Goenka Awards for excellence in Journalism, our mainstream media took it upon themselves to showcase their brand of journalism.

It was the perfect example of our media’s day to day job that included twisting statement, quoting them out of context and sensationalizing news to get TRP even if it hurts the country’s image. So a statement which had no mention of word intolerance was put in ‘Intolerance’ template and headline was made – ‘Aamir joins intolerance debate’.

Before Aamir could say ‘Intolerance’ media had sold him for cheap TRPs like ‘Panipuri’ is sold on ‘Chaat ka thela’. Earlier Barkha Dutt had given Birthday gift to Shahrukh Khan by dragging him in ‘Intolerance’ debate and single handedly ensured that no amount of flying Mahindra Scorpios could save Dilwale from sinking at box office.

Poor SRK didn’t get any time to react/clarify his stand. But thankfully Aamir has learned from SRK’s mistake. He is now ready to do whatever it takes to ensure profit for the stakeholders.
