At a suburban restaurant in Mumbai, Neha Dhupia recently launched India's first audio and Braille food menu for visually-challenged.

It would help visually-impaired people as they will not have to wait for the waiter to read the menu to them.

Speaking at the occasion Dhupia said, "For the first time in the country and probably for the first time in the world, it may exist somewhere, may not, that we don't know. But definitely the first time in the country, a menu not only for the people who can see what is written but also for the visually challenged because it's in Braille and more importantly contains an audio. All you need to do is just pick it up and press it."

She also added that it was an initiative for the blind people to make them feel equal and give them fair opportunities.

Dhupia was accompanied by other Bollywood actors Divyendu Sharma and Aditi Sharma at the event.
