me neither.. but some have cynically called this as entertainment-ization of social issues with Amir as the front man who is getting paid 3 crores per episode in the process.

Tax-free, because he is an actor.

I don't understand why the elite types smell cynicism in any effort made by someone to do something good. It is a great initiative by Aamir Khan and I am hopeful it will bring some change.

Even if a single girl child can be saved because of it's impact the first episode was successful.

Saw the first show in India with parents. Liked it a lot. Mom was very impressed. She told me that her friends were inquiring among each other who had seen the first episode.

It seems like Rajasthan CM has agreed to put fast track courts for female infanticide cases, as suggested in the show.

I hope this show has an impact, in the sense that some fruitful steps are taken by administrations. There have been so many attempts by many social workers in past, to raise a variety of social issues, but nothing has been much successful.

Even if this show it completely commercialised, I would argue that even if one or two people in every village react positively to the show and do something about the issue under discussion, it will lead to a fairly large movement.

Amir Khan is a opinion leader for many and is forcing a discussion around a issue that we all know exists but want to skirt around it since its not polite dinner table conversation. If in the process he makes money what is wrong??
