Guest Lecture was held in the department of Mass Communication by Ritu Bhardwaj, a Researcher and Script Writer (associated with Aamir Khan Productions) on the Topic: The making of Satyamev Jayate.
“Ninety nine percent of what goes into television is behind the camera. Some of us write well and therefore, make good writers; others think well and therefore, make good directors. Finding your forte is of essence,” said Ritu Bhardwaj, one of the key members of the creative team of Satyamev Jayate, sharing her professional journey with the students of mass communication. Also associated with “Kiran ki Kacheri”, a programme hosted by Dr Kiran Bedi, Ritu said her interest in social issues keeps the media person in her alive. Speaking about the role of research in television, she said, desk research has its limitations and actual research happens with real time subjects. Among the questions asked by the students were: Whether or not Satyamev Jayate was scripted? If Aamir Khan is as emotional a person as was shown in the reality show?
Students enjoyed the lecture a lot and were appraised of the working behind the scenes for any TV show.It was a great learning experience for the students.
