YRF salutes Indian paralympians, to reward Thangavelu

Mumbai, Sep 14 (IANS) Yash Raj Films (YRF) on Wednesday announced it will honour Indian paralympian gold medal winners and has saluted Mariyappan Thangavelu for his historic gold win in men’s high jump T-42 event at the Rio Paralympics.

“The studio believes to celebrate the sportsman spirit of these athletes and their life-sized dream that emerged victorious,” read a statement from YRF.

Earlier, the entertainment banner had earlier announced that they would honour Indian athletes who would have won a gold medal at the Rio Olympics with Rs 1 million.

Now, the reward for Rio Paralympics winners is a gesture on similar lines — that of saluting the indomitable spirit of sportspersons and champions, as every small gesture goes a long way.

YRF is known to back sports-based subjects in Hindi cinema. With “Chak De! India”, it had backed a powerful message in support of women in sports.

With “Sultan”, the film studio expressed support for wrestling in India.
