Aamir Khan’s Talk Show: an Emotional Affair

Aamir Khan’s Talk Show: an Emotional Affair

September 23, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / Pen Men at Work ) : If ‘Mr. Perfectionist’ Aamir Khan decides to host a TV talk show, who will he look at for inspiration?

Obviously, at the queen of all talk shows! Oprah Winfrey!

And if you have even slightest idea about ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show,’ you know that the show and Ms. Winfrey successfully gripped millions of people around the globe with emotions for twenty five long years!

Trust me, Aamir’s debut reality TV show is going to be an emotional affair as well!

The show, tentatively named ‘Mera Bharat Mahan,’ produced by Siddharth Basu’s Big Synergy to be aired on Star Plus, has the same flavor and all the ingredients as the Winfrey show.

Aamir’s show will deal with the common men in India - Aamir’s common men that he has portrayed through ‘Lagaan,’ and ‘Peepli Live.’ The plight and predicament of ordinary Indian citizens, who want to live a simple life and carry out day-to-day chores to stay alive, is at the heart of this show.

“The shooting of the first episode was quite an emotional affair, as Aamir broke down quite a few times during the shoot and had to take breaks  to regain his composure,” the channel reports.

For the sake of spontaneity, our Mr. Perfectionist had not met the people beforehand, whose life stories were being unfolded.

And like the Winfrey show, when Aamir as a host got emotional, many in the audience had wet eyes too!

“The whole atmosphere on the set was emotional and somber,” the report says.

The exact title or the air date/time of the show is not decided yet, but one thing is sure, unlike other megastars of the tinsel town who host various shows on the small screen, Aamir’s thought provoking reality talk show will bring a different vibes to our living rooms!
