MUMBAI: Known to be soft targets, it?s almost become a fad to sue celebrities in India these days. After the likes of Amitabh Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit being recently pulled into the Maggi Noodles controversy, now Aamir Khan has landed himself in a legal mess.

An activist has sent a legal notice to the Bollywood actor and director of popular television show Satyamev Jayate, for using the country?s emblem as the title of the programme allegedly without the permission of the Central Government.

The activist Manoranjan Roy says that the name Satyamev Jayate is a part of the national emblem as well as part of the State Emblem, which cannot be used without permission as per State Emblem of India (Prohibition of Improper Use) Act 2009.

The notice sent by advocate Manoj Singh on Roy?s behalf to Aamir Khan, his wife Kiran Rao and the show?s director Satyajit Bhatkal, demands that producers of the show furnish a copy of government permission. ?Otherwise our client has given us peremptory instructions to initiate legal proceedings against you,? it says.

No authority has the right to register or grant patent, which contains the State Emblem or its part, the notice says, adding that ?it cannot be used to get monetary benefit or for the purpose of advertisement.?

Satyamev Jayate hosted by Khan, aired on Star India?s channels and Doordarshan.
