Mumbai: Bollywood’s handsome hunk Hrithik Roshan, who will be seen in his forthcoming movie ‘Kaabil’ in which he will be seen playing the role of a visually challenged character by which he feels that we are blind to our own potential and being blind in real make us open to our potential.
The actor went on to say that during an interview: “They are an example of the potential that lies inside all of us. We are blind to our own potential, but the blind can actually make us open our eyes to our potential. It’s incredible inspiring when you learn of blind photographers, blind make-up artist, painters, lawyers, singers. They are doing everything, I mean to which world we were in thinking how this could be possible.”
He further went on to say that: “The film is not trying to give a message out but through the film, through the campaign, through our words we want to create this awareness about the blind because we truly believe that we are blind to their world. Their world is not how we perceive and the reason I m saying this is because I myself went through that revelation.”
Placing emphasis on the movie ‘Kaabil’ that portrays the true picture of blind and added: “I realised myself when I saw in the script there were action, dance and I said but they are blind this will not look real then I was shown videos, I met some of my blind friends. And I was amazed that I have been so unaware. Through this film I hope to raise this awareness about the blind and for the blind.”
The movie is the directorial venture of Sanjay Gupta and also features Yami Gautam as the leading lady and is scheduled to hit the theatres on January 25, 2017.
