Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]Nov 14 (ANI): Actor Ranveer Singh, who urged the authorities to consider and declare Indian Sign Language (ISL) as the 23rd official language of India, is happy that his film ’83’ is all set to screen in Sign Language.
“When 83 was told to me, what I loved most about the story was how the team celebrated the inclusivity of people and cultures and also championed the individuality of the players, creating an unbeatable team that won us the Cricket World Cup in 1983. They believed in us. that we could be… world beaters. If we are to be the best in the world, we have to come together and unite as a country,” he said.
“For me, I have been trying to do my bit to make Indian Sign Language (ISL) the 23rd official language of India so that we can provide equal opportunities to deaf people in our society. I am always looking for opportunities to open up a conversation about deaf people in India . . I hope this screening will spark further conversations related to this important issue,” he added.
Kabir Khan-starrer ’83’, which celebrates India’s first Cricket World Cup victory in 1983, was released on 24 December 2021. Apart from Ranveer, the film also stars Harrdy Sandhu, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Saqib Saleem, Ammy Virk , Deepika Padukone and Pankaj Tripathi among others. (NEITHER)
