Ranveer Singh has always been very enthusiastic about helping the deaf community and creating content for it. On the occasion of the International Day of Sign Languages, Ranveer announced that his record company, Inc Ink is about to launch 5 music videos for the hearing impaired. Not only that, he 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 have all come to appreciate and embrace over the past year and a half, it is the power of community and being there for each other. My message to young people today would be to continue doing the work that you are … and if in any way you can create or propagate an inclusive space by working with the Deaf community, do it. From hospitality to education in the creative arts. We can only make this change together and my confidence and support is in the youth of our country. It is a long journey that awaits us.
Speaking of his IncInk label, Ranveer said:
At IncInk, we are all committed to continuing as allies of our deaf community and reaching the finish line with them. There are so many levels to it. At IncInk, we create art and this is what we will continue to make accessible to the deaf community. Our ISL videos for example – Mohabbat, Sangeet, Black, Aur Karo and Vichaar which were released today to celebrate International Sign Language Day.
On the work side, Ranveer will then be seen sharing screen space with Deepika padukone in ’83, and I can’t wait to see my favorite couple on screen again!
