Special Lecture on ‘Portrayal of Disability in Indian Cinema’

New Delhi, December 12, 2013: Mr. George Abraham, CEO, Score Foundation and a well-known disability sector activist, delivered a special lecture on ‘Potrayal of Disability in Indian Cinema’ at Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication (AIMC), New Delhi. It was chaired by Prof. Ashok Ogra, Director, AIMC.

Mr. Abraham and the students freely exchanged their views about the various aspects of disability issues touched by several movies of India and the West. He also discussed about the art of film making with responsibility and empathy towards the differently-abled. He took examples from various Hindi film makers of classic films like Anurag, Arzoo, Dosti, and also some comparatively recent movies of the popular culture like Black, Mann & Taare Zameen Par and critically analysed how the disability issue was being highlighted in various films. He was of the view that films stereotype the minds of society when they show the disabled person in the films as a lesser individual who is being sympathised by others.
