Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate stuck in the pesticide web

By HT

Within a fortnight of getting a thumbs up from the BCCC for airing popular show Satyamev Jayate, Aamir Khan faces yet another controversy, this time from a pesticide company honcho who appeared on the show last year.

Rajju Shroff, CMD of United Phosphorus has sent a legal notice to Aamir and his entourage demanding a public apology for showing him in ‘bad light’, reports Mumbai Mirror.

Shroff’s grievance stems from being cornered in the last episode of the show concerning the woes of lactating mothers, infants and researchers who represented the general tone of the show. The verdict seemed to be - pesticides are harmful. "All those who claim pesticides are harmful are liars," Shroff is seen advocating his opinion on the episode.
