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. It is an initiative taken by Saksham Trust for the visually impaired to access the joy of cinema through audio description.
The movie featured Sanjay Dutt, Arshad Warsi and Vidya Balan in key roles and is considered to be one of the cine goers’ favourite of all time. Lage Raho Munna Bhai was the highest grossing film of that year, and broke multiple records at the box office.
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.
