News Helpline | August, 27 2012

Oscar-winning sound specialist Resul Pookutty who won Oscars for Slumdog Millionaire says he was misinterpreted when he said that Aamir Khan's TV show, Satyamev Jayate had been doctored.  In an interview given to a leading newspaper, Hindustan, Pookutty was quoted as saying, "Satyamev Jayate was a completely doctored show. A lot of sound post-production work was done on the show. It was treated just like a film. Like how you sound (mixing) is handled in a film so that you can sort of emotionally blackmail audiences. That's what was done with SMJ." 

When he saw it took to serious criticism Resul Pookutty rushed to clarify the statements tweeting, "Misinterpretation and a doctored story quoting me on #satyamevjayate in todays HT. Sad journalism. Spoke on Tim Sebastian shw, dis came out!" Pookutty, who won an Oscar for his work in Slumdog Millionaire, is part of TV personality Tim Sebastian's debate series, The Outsider, which is somewhat on the lines of Satyamev Jayate and the comments were reportedly made in reference to Sebastian's show where Pookutty reportedly claimed that Sebastian's show wouldn't manipulate the audience the way Satyamev Jayate did. But Pookutty still insists that his comments were taken out of context and further tweeted saying, "I'm sorry to have been a reason to cause hurt to @aamir_khan. I never intent to. what smj has done is what our govt couldn't do in 65y. "
