“Once Aamir finishes the promotions of his Diwali release, Thugs Of Hindostan, he will start focussing on the show. His team has begun the research, but the actor, who covers all aspects of a topic, wants everything to be perfect before it goes on air. This time, the superstar will deal with broader topics and those that affect GenNext like depression and unemployment, etc. The show, comprising around 10 episodes, will air post Ted Talks India. While SMJ will be relayed at 11 am every Sunday, talks are still on for a slot for SRK’s show. Last season, the latter was aired at 7 pm, but this time around, that may change as the channel wants to build a slot for knowledge-driven and motivational series,” says an insider.
We contacted Aamir’s spokesperson, but there wasn’t any revert till the time of going to press.
