India is trying its best to help the visually handicapped and people with hearing impairment through different measures. Out of all such steps, one is the launch of Indian sign language dictionary. Earlier this month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched the dictionary. Now, the latest we hear is about Shah Rukh Khan’s connection with the dictionary.
Yesterday, we celebrated Indian sign language day. On this special occasion, we heard about Shah Rukh making his way to Indian sign language dictionary. Yes, you read that right! Many assumed it’s Shah Rukh’s iconic romantic pose (spreading arms) that has made the cut, but that’s not the case. Below is all you need to know.
As per the sign language lexicon, one can describe Shah Rukh Khan by holding the fingers of right hand like a gun. Then tap above your heart twice. That’s how you describe Shah Rukh in sign language. Reportedly, Shah Rukh is one of 10,000 words added to the new updated dictionary.
The dictionary is made available in DVD and traditional print form by Indian Sign Language Research and Training Centre.
If reports are to be believed, previous editions of the dictionary had mentions of Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor and Salman Khan.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Shah Rukh Khan has three big projects in the making. He has already shot major portions of Siddharth Anand’s Pathan alongside Deepika Padukone and John Abraham.
