Aamir Khan’s Dangal has managed to set yet another milestone. A special audio track has been dubbed for the film in order to reach out to its differently-abled audiences on television.

According to a report in The Times of India, an NGO named Saksham has created the audio for the visually-impaired. They have also made audio descriptions for films like PK and Black.

The NGO also plans to make Hindi Medium, Airlift and Raag Desh accessible to the visually-impaired, and give them a more immersive experience.

As the founder of Saksham puts it, entertainment remains just as important in the lives of the differently-abled and it’s about time Bollywood rose to the occasion.
