The daily quoted a source saying, "Once Aamir finishes the promotions of his Diwali release, Thugs Of Hindostan, he will start focussing on the show. His team has begun the research, but the actor, who covers all aspects of a topic, wants everything to be perfect before it goes on air. This time, the superstar will deal with broader topics and those that affect GenNext like depression and unemployment, etc."

It is touted that SMJ, comprising around 10 episodes, will air post-Shah Rukh Khan's Ted Talks India. While SMJ will be relayed at 11 am every Sunday, talks are still on for a slot for SRK’s show. The insider further revealed that the change in timings from 7 pm to 11 am is being considered as the channel wants to build a slot for knowledge-driven and motivational series.

While there has been no official confirmation from Aamir yet, we cannot wait for the show to air.
