In the episode, an individual named Harish had narrated his experience of having survived sexual abuse as a child. He also spoke about how Hindi films were something that gave him strength during that tough time, and how he liked Sridevi’s films. Aamir then told him that Sridevi was so moved by his video testimony that she came to meet him on the show.

Talking to Harish in Hindi, Sridevi said, “What you went through for 18 years, I cannot imagine any child going through it. You showed great strength in sharing all that with us. This may give strength to so many kids experiencing this same hell. That makes you a real hero.” She then gave him a few DVDs of her old films as a gift. Aamir applauded Sridevi’s gesture too as Harish admitted he was too tongue-tied to speak.

Later in the episode as a band played a special song in tribute to all the survivors present, Harish got emotional. Sridevi, who was seated next to him, held his hand and smiled at him. In a video of this part shared by the show on YouTube, fans were all praises for Sridevi’s gesture. One fan commented, “A great actor and human being.” Many referred to that specific moment and called it a great gesture. “No attitude, just humanity,” wrote one fan.

Sridevi died in 2018 of accidental drowning in her guest room at a Dubai hotel. The actor was in town to attend the wedding of her husband Boney Kapoor’s nephew Mohit Marwah. Sridevi was accorded full state honours in her funeral.
