In an interview with a leading English daily, Resul Pookutty hit out at Satyamev Jayate saying the TV show was completely a 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," the daily quotes him as saying.
However, Resul Pookutty is now working on Tim Sebastian's much-awaited debate series The Outsider, which is being made on the lines of Satyamev Jayate. Talking about this show, he said that it would be at par with international programming. Meanwhile, he added, "We are doing no such manipulation."
