Rajkumar Hirani’s “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” to be screened for the visually impaired at “Golden Jubilee of International Film Festival of India this year!
“Lage Raho Munna Bhai” one of the most iconic movies of Bollywood is slated to be screened at IFFI in Goa between 23rd to 25th November 2019 as an initiative taken by Saksham Trust for the visually impaired to access the joy of cinema through audio description.
Audio description is a brilliant innovation that dramatically enhances the accessibility of films through its additional narration that translates visual information and non dialogue portions into spoken words so that the visually impaired can also access and enjoy films as much as others do.
Rajkumar Hirani is one of the few filmmakers to have contributed to this cause, with “PK” being one of the first films with audio description and “SANJU” to have released with audio description through a special App devised by XL cinema while it was still running in cinema halls.
On the occasion of Children’s day this year, Saksham Trust has also screened “Lage Raho Munna Bhai” in Delhi, to promote the message of Gandhian values amongst the visually impaired children as the film remains extremely popular and close to the heart of the nation.
