Salman Khan's blockbuster movie "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" will be dubbed in sign language for the hearing and speech impaired movie goers.

The decision was made after Geeta, the mute Indian girl who is stuck in Pakistan since the last 15 years, requested for the dubbing of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" in sign language.

"I have recently interacted with Geeta, who is in Karachi (Pakistan), through video call using sign language. She said that Salman's 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' should be dubbed into sign language so that she and a large number of people like her would be able to watch and understand the movie, especially its songs and dialogues in a better way," the Hindustan Times quoted Gyanendra Purohit, Head of Centre for Persons with Special Needs, who will do the dubbing.

"On the request of Geeta, we are going to dub 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' into sign language. We wish that when it is exhibited for the first time, both Salman and Geeta should be part of the screening," he added.

Apparently, Geeta is a big fan of Salman and the movie "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" holds a special place in her heart as it is based on the story of a Pakistani mute girl who gets stranded in India and resembles Geeta's real life.

Head of Centre for Persons with Special Needs has been in touch with the Indian external affairs ministry for some time to facilitate Geeta's return to India; reports suggest that the girl will finally be able to come home on 26 October.
