Sridevi makes special appearance on Aamir’s showMay 13th, 2012 - 4:52 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 13 (IANS) Aamir Khan brought up the issue of child sex abuse in the second episode of “Satyamev Jayate” Sunday. Yesteryears screen diva Sridevi made a special appearance on the show, her first appearance with Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist.
The 48-year-old came to meet Harish Aiyer, one of the victims of child abuse who told Aamir that he was abused by a man for 11 years. He also said that when he tried to tell his mother, she didn’t take him seriously.
At that time his only support was his dog and Bollywood movies, especially the ones starring Sridevi. And that is why the actress was invited on the show.
Harish was excited when he received a gift from his favourite star.
On the show, Aamir spoke to several other victims who narrated their horrific experiences of being molested, sodomised and threatened by their tormentors.
Cinderella Prakash, another victim, said how she was abused by a 55-year-old man when she was just 12.
According to a survey, 53 percent children who went through child sexual abuse were boys.
Aamir concluded the show with Good Touch, Bad Touch workshop for children to teach them about the importance of understanding sexual abuse and recognising predators.
The actor also appealed to people to press the government to pass the Protection of Children From Sexual Offences Bill in parliament.
