Hrithik Roshan releases Braille-Tactile children’s book series named ‘Tactabet’
Hrithik Roshan will be playing a visually impaired in his upcoming release ‘Kaabil‘. Following the promotions of this romantic action thriller, the actor made his way at a book launch event. This book is a one of its kind Braille-Tactile children’s book series named ‘Tactabet’. It is an integrated and fun learning book for the visually impaired and kids with low vision.
Hrithik Roshan and his co-star Yami Gautam have emotionally invested in their role for ‘Kaabil’, and have completely dedicated their time while preparing for the same. Therefore, it doesn’t come much as a surprise that they are the first actors whose interviews will be published in Braille format in the next issue of White Print Magazine.
When Hrithik got to know about this initiative (book), he immediately dedicated his time for a full length Facebook Live Launch and interview with Upasana Makati, editor and publisher, White Print.
Talking about ‘Tactabet’ at this event, Hrithik Roshan said that, “I have studied the basic skills of how the visually impaired people read, and I was absolutely dumbfounded to see how fast they read and how they use all four fingers. And when they read it aloud, its like seeings a news reader read on TV, that is how normal and effortless it is. Tactabet brings tears to my eyes, not because its for little children but because it’s such a heart warming idea and it gives the reader the whole experience of learning and its beautiful. It is a combination of feeling the indentation and also making out the shape of the letter like B for Ball or A for Apple and that is just genius. God bless the team of White Print and all the wonderful kids who will be learning through this medium.”
‘Kaabil’ is directed by Sanjay Gupta and produced by Rakesh Roshan. Co-starring Ronit Roy and Rohit Roy, the movie is slated to release on January 25, 2017.
