Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan is keen to contribute towards the welfare of the differently abled by making theatres accessible to them with necessary facilities like lifts and ramps.
Hrithik has been talking about wanting to work on that front, but talking about the progress, he said in a statement: “I have spoken to Ajay Bijli (of PVR Cinemas). But yes, we are going to take that up in a very big way.”
“We are still discussing and planning. I do feel that this is a very important issue and we should do something about it in a big way because they (the differently abled) should not feel deprived of watching our cinema. So hopefully soon, I will have something more.”
Hrithik’s last film, Kaabil, was about a visually impaired man. He has also played differently abled characters in films like ‘Koi Mil Gaya’ and ‘Guzaarish’ – all of which won him critical acclaim.
At the trailer launch of Vikram Phadnis’s film ‘Hrudyantar’, in which he has a cameo, the actor had also spoken about his happiness on learning that the event’s venue was differently abled friendly.
