“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.

With Pati, Patni Aur Woh opening brilliantly, Bhumi Pednekar is set to make a rare mark in the industry. Bhumi will be one of the very few actresses who has actually had three successes in a row and that too in a calendar year.

Pati, Patni Aur Woh is riding on hugely positive word of mouth and is definitely set to become a hit especially with the film making a weekend business of Rs 38cr

. Her last film Bala in which she highlighted the societal stereotyping of India’s obsession for fair skin has gone on to become a blockbuster. Her Diwali release, Saand Ki Aankh also held its ground despite a three film release day with Housefull 4 and Made in China and emerged victorious as the obvious second best. This is definitely a big achievement by an actress in the recent times.

Bhumi says, “It has been an incredible year for me as an artist. I have done such variety of roles that it has been creatively satisfying. I hope Pati Patni Aur Woh becomes a big hit to cap my year on a hugely positive note. I have only strives to give something new to audiences in theatres and I thank them for their support and love towards my films and acting.”

#Kedarnath”.

Kedarnath received an exceptional response from the audience across quarters owing to the gripping storyline and crackling chemistry of the lead actors Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput. The film also marked the silver screen debut of actress Sara Ali Khan.

In the film, Sushant essays the role of a cheerful and hard-working Muslim pithoo who carries the devotees on his back to the Kedarnath shrine for livelihood, while Sara essays the role of a bubbly Hindu devotee who falls in love with her bearer. It is intriguing to see is how love blossoms between them, get hit by caste barriers and eventually gets tangled with the devastating Uttarakhand floods that hit the state in 2013

Produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP and Pragya Kapoor’s Guy In the Sky Pictures, Kedarnath is directed by Abhishek Kapoor. The film released on 7th December 2018 to massice critical acclaim and performed well at the box office.
