We4you brings magic of cinema to visually impaired students



Bhubaneswar: In an effort to ensure the joy and wonder of cinema being accessible to all, We4you Charitable Trust, in support of Roundtable India BRT 53 and Mayank Enterprises has taken an initiative ‘Movie Time’ which aimed at providing audio visual experience to visually impaired students Friday.

Around 200 visually impaired students from different schools and colleges visited Keshari talkies here, and experienced the screening of the movie ‘Srikanth’ based on the life and journey of Srikanth Bhola, a visually impaired person who became the first blind entrepreneur in India.

“Movies have the power to transport us to different worlds, evoke emotions, and ignite our imagination. However, for visually impaired individuals, traditional movie screenings often present barriers,” said Abhaya Mohanta, founder of We4you.

“We4you has collaborated with local schools to create a tailored cinematic experience that can cater to the unique needs of visually impaired students,” he added.

We4you Charitable Trust is committed to fostering inclusivity and accessibility in all aspects of the society, and ‘Movie Time’ is one of the many initiatives undertaken to create a more equitable society for individuals.

Srikanth is a biographical film on the life of Srikanth Bolla, a visually-impaired industrialist and the founder of Bollant Industries. It is directed by Tushar Hiranandani and stars Rajkummar Rao in the eponymous role with Jyothika, Alaya F and Sharad Kelkar. Srikanth was released Friday.
