No villain in my show: Aamir

Mumbai, May 6 (IANS) Actor-producer Aamir Khan, whose "Satyameva Jayate" saw its first episode, dealing with female foeticide, aired Sunday morning, said there was no villain in his show and nor was he advocating any solution but just bringing problems to the people's notice.

"Doctors should not be blamed in this (female foeticide). Everyone involved in this are equally responsible. I don't understand why there is so much of fascination with boy child. After all, It is a woman who takes the family ahead," Aamir said, on the issue.

"There is no villain in my show. Who is the villain, it is we all who are doing something wrong. Each problem can be solved through love and that is the reason even my song 'Satyameva Jayate' is a love song," he added.

The opening episode had mothers from different parts of the country, from both rural and urban areas talking about the pressure and the problems they faced for delivering a girl child.

The actor says he can't solve anything, neither can the government.

"I am no one to bring change or solve anything neither can the government. One person cannot improve this or bring solution. I can only keep the issue in front of everyone. The only solution is each and everyone should say I will not do that," Aamir said.
