Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah has associated with a TV series”Nazar Ya Nazariya”, which will feature real life stories of visually challenged achievers in the country. He believes stereotypes related to disabilities need to be broken.

The actor will introduce and sign off each episode of the show, which will otherwise be hosted by Harsh Chhaya.

Launched by Score Foundation, an NGO which works towards empowering the visually challenged, the 13-part series, which will be aired on Doordarshan, is aimed at questioning common perceptions and focusing on the immense possibilities of life with blindness.

When I did ‘Sparsh’ in the early 1980s, I had the opportunity of interacting with several visually impaired individuals. I realised that the problem is not with the Nazar it is with the Nazariya,” Naseeruddin said in a statement.

What is important here is that people like you and me need to break away from the societal stereotypes and commonly held perceptions about disability and success or happiness.

This is the main message that we are trying to drive through this television series and we hope that we are able to achieve this goal by reaching out to more and more people of this country,” he added.

The TV series is funded by Sightsavers International, an international charity organisation, Tech Mahindra Foundation and Union Bank of India.

The themes showcased on the show will range from education, employment, business, art and culture to marriage and relationships.

“Nazar Ya Nazariya” will go on air Sep 21.
