Amitabh Bachchan has again come up with one of his amazing avatars. Ahead of Independence Day, Bollywood’s Shahenshah has come up with a new video, where he is performing the national anthem in sign language with some physically challenged children and the Red Fort in the background.
Union Minister for Human Resource Development Mahendra Nath Pandey launched this mesmerizing video of the national anthem on Thursday.
He said on the occasion, “The government addressed the physically challenged as “divyang” and not “viklang” to ensure there was no distinction.”
“This is a proud moment for us that the National Anthem has been produced in sign language for those who depend on it,” he added.
Directed by veteran filmmaker Govind Nihalani, the score has been composed by late Aadesh Shrivastava.
Praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his call for the inclusion of "divyangjan" in the country's development, Pandey said, “Modi had a vision that India’s development will be complete when our divyangjan become an integral part of it and come forward in the nation building.’Divyang' (divine body) instead of 'viklang' be used for persons with disability."
The video was also launched in Goa, Bhopal, Chandigarh and Kolhapur.
