In Sanjay Gupta’s upcoming movie -Kaabil, Hrithik Roshan who is the lead actor is playing a blind man’s character. Ever since the trailer of the movie was launched, trolls caught an eye on something which was missed by the commoner’s gaze. And that was, Hrithik Roshan wearing a watch. The question aroused, why in earth Hrithik is wearing a watch if he is blind.
Have a look :
Here’s an example of the troll :
The film’s director Sanjay Gupta took to Twitter and responded to the trolls :
A lot of people are actually questioning Hrithik wearing a watch in Kaabil just because he is blind. Please koi samjhao inn geniuses ko. pic.twitter.com/TVkzRGljTe

Sanjay was also quoted by DNA as saying, “I am amused to see that a lot of people have an objection to Hrithik wearing a watch in Kaabil promos despite being visually impaired. However, here’s a fact that would perhaps help enhance their intellect.There are watches specially designed for visually challenged people and they are called – Braille watches. And now there are also talking watches available for the ones who can’t see. Hrithik’s character is wearing one. So you see we did our homework.”
“Trust me, when you see the film, you will agree that the watch plays an important part in the narrative. I can’t divulge more on that right now but looking at what started off on social media, it is safe to say that we are living in a country where people jump the gun and derive pleasure in running someone else’s efforts down,” he added.
So now no more trolling folks, when you have been enlightened !
