While sharing the stories of his troubled past with Aamir Khan, participant Harish Aiyer said that it was his pet Alsatian and his favourite Bollywood actress Sridevi who gave him strength to get through his bad times. He said that watching Sridevi’s films gave him the courage to raise his voice against the exploitation he went through for 11 years.
The makers of ‘Satyamev Jayate’ arranged for Sridevi to come on the show and meet her fan. After meeting Harish, Sridevi said, “I am glad that my films gave you strength in your troubled times. You have shared your past with us and this will encourage all those who are going through this. That makes you a real hero.”
Sridevi also pledged her support to the cause by signing on a letter to the government asking for a strong law against sexual abuse of children.
