Ranveer Singh has always been quite vocal about helping the deaf community and creating content for them. On the occasion of International Day of Sign Languages, Ranveer announced that his record label, IncInk is set to launch 5 music videos for the hearing impaired. Not just that, he has also urged the authorities to consider and declare Indian Sign Language (ISL) as the 23rd official language of India.
Speaking of helping the deaf community, Ranveer said-
If there is anything we all have come to value and embrace in the last year and a half is the power of community and being there for each other. My message to the youth today would be to keep doing the work you are… and if in any way you can create or propagate an inclusive space by working with the Deaf community, please do. From hospitality to education to creative arts. We can only make this change together and my trust and support lie with the youth of our country. It’s a long journey that lies ahead.
Speaking of his record label IncInk, Ranveer said-
At IncInk we all are committed to carry through as allies of our deaf community and get to the finish line with them. There are so many levels to this. At IncInk, we create art and that is what we will continue to make accessible to the Deaf community. Our ISL videos for instance – Mohabbat, Sangeet, Black, Aur Karo and Vichaar that were released today to celebrate International Day of Sign Languages.
On the work front, Ranveer will next be seen sharing the screen space with Deepika Padukone in ’83, and I am totally looking forward to seeing my favourite couple on screen again!
