Aamir Khan invited to Parliament, to expose major goof-up?

Aamir Khan
New Delhi, Jun 19: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan has been invited to Parliament and he is expected to give a speech in Rajya Sabha on Thursday, Jun 21.

The star, who has recently raised issues related to alleged malpractice in medical sector through his TV reality show Satyameva Jayate, faced controversy. However, his research and the programme caught attention of many including Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Shanta Kumar.

Shanta Kumar, who is an MP in Rajya Sabha and also heads the Parliamentary standing committee on commerce, invited Aamir to enlighten them more about the shocking incident.

Aamir, during the episode of Satyameva Jayate on May 27, showed how doctors in several medical organisations allegedly robbed patients through over-pricing life-saving medicines.

During his show, Aamir spoke with many people who were victimised when they approached reputed hospitals for treatment. Many doctors have been accused of forcing patients to undergo surgeries, though it was clear that those people could have been cured with simple medicines.

Earlier Aamir refused to apologise to the Indian Medical Association which has accused him of defaming the medical profession through Satyameva Jayate.

"I am very comfortable if they (IMA) plan to take legal action if they feel that I have done something wrong. Of course, the courts are available for them. My answer is no, I will not be apologising," Aamir told NDTV.

The actor denied IMA's charge of defaming and insulting the medical profession. "I deny that I have done that. I have the highest respect and regard for the medical profession," he said.
