WHO’S THE HERO?

India Today - - GLASS HOUSE -

One man who is not happy with all the at­ten­tion Aamir Khan is get­ting for his TV show is Ra­jasthan Min­is­ter of State for Health Raj Kumar Sharma, 38. Af­ter the first episode of Satyamev Jay­ate forced Ra­jasthan Chief Min­is­ter Ashok Gehlot to in­vite Khan to Jaipur on May 9 and prom­ise ac­tion on fe­male in­fan­ti­cide ram­pant in his state, Sharma told peo­ple at a rally in Ka­rauli, “For Aamir, fe­male in­fan­ti­cide is a mat­ter of en­ter­tain­ment, he charges Rs 3 crore for an episode and has ad­mit­ted that he is an en­ter­tainer and not an ac­tivist.” He also said: “I am the real hero be­cause I have been go­ing from vil­lage to vil­lage to sen­si­tise peo­ple about it.” Ah. Per­haps a lo­cal chan­nel could of­fer the min­is­ter a sim­i­lar show? Pos­si­bly at the rate of Rs 3 an episode.
