I am no one to solve issues, I can only highlight them: Aamir
Elated by the response, Aamir Khan said he will bring up more issues on the show but he does not see himself as a change-maker.
The first episode of the show, telecast this morning, focused on the issue of female foeticide in India.
"I am no one to bring change or solve anything...Neither (is) the government. I can only keep the issues in front of everyone. The change should come from within. One person cannot improve or bring solution to an issue," Aamir said, talking to reporters this afternoon.
"I was watching the show with my wife, son Azad, and core team of the show...I had tears in my eyes. I got good response from industry friends and various medium - twitter, youtube.
"There will be many more issues on the show. But I won't reveal...Let it be a suspense," Aamir said.
When asked if the burning issue of the times, corruption, will feature, Aamir said, "Corruption is a very strong issue...We all are involved in it. A strong law must come in force...But it is equally important to change ourselves first."
Today's episode dealt with stories of mothers who struggled to give birth to a girl child, because of the society's bias for `a boy'.
"There was no specific reason to highlight this issue (female foeticide) in the first show, the actor said.
He also said that doctors alone must not be held responsible for foeticide, everyone involved shares the blame. "During our research we came across a fact that even though the doctors who indulge in sex determination ...Their license is not revoked....I request all state medical councils to take strict action against them (doctors)."
