Talking about the research on the first episode, which centered around the topic of rape, he said they were shocked to find stories of apathy and inhumanity. "We were faced with such inhumanity that it was difficult to absorb it. It was a ravaging period in the entire research," he said, adding that the attempt has been to have a crisis centre for rape victims which will help them get swift justice.
The actor said he is prepared to hear negative stories about the show as certain people were bound to attack it.
"There are people who are trying to take away our credibility. There are rumors but you have to be prepared for it. You have to hope that people at large will be able to see what is right and what is not and that they would go by logic," Aamir said.
The actor said he would never endorse a fairness cream brand and is aghast to see celebrities endorsing it. "It was rather unfortunate. I was very surprised by the decision. Personally, I feel it's really time that we moved forward and pursued equality for all," he said. Aamir has now become more open to media following a difficult relationship in the past.
"I think I went into a shell during 2006-07. I had nothing against media but I did not want to deal with it. I found them extremely intrusive. I found them to be very attacking. "It was a phase when TV channels were mushrooming and I think there was a struggle for readership space... it had become vicious medium. I did not know how to react to it. I was being lashed from every side but things changed while working on 'Taare Zameen Par'," he added.
