Superstar Hrithik Roshan was recently highly appreciated for his role as a visually impaired character in his last film ‘Kaabil,’ (2017) in which he was paired opposite Yami Gautam. And after understanding the plight of the differently abled people while doing the said role, Roshan expressed his desire to promote better infrastructure for differently-abled people so that they can have greater accessibility to public places, especially in multiplexes.
During the film’s making, Roshan said that, thanks to his ‘challenging’ role in Kaabil, that he was able to develop a deep connection and a sense of understanding with differently abled people, reports Bollywood Hungama. He said, “Through my film’s characters, I have acquired a deeper understanding of differently abled people’s lives and the challenges they face. One thing that has been playing on my mind is the need for our public places to be easily accessible to these people. It is a larger thought, but it is surprising that it hasn’t happened yet, even with over 20 million differently-abled people in India.”
Roshan went on to say, “Coming from the film fraternity, I would like to appeal to the multiplex chains to take the differently-abled people into consideration and work towards appropriate infrastructure, with which they will not be deprived of the big-screen experience of a film. And won’t have to think twice before stepping out for something as small as watching a movie. I’d love to help if there is anything I can do for that.”
Back on the movie side, even though Roshan is yet to announce his next Bollywood venture, he will be soon seen in Marathi film ‘Hrudayantar,’ which marks designer Vikram Phadnis’ debut film as a director.
