Mumbai: A special screening of `Havai Dada`, a film starring Anupam Kher and Tanuja, here Saturday cheered up disabled children from non-profit organisation ADAPT, formerly called the Spastic Society of India.

The film that has been produced by Karol Bagh Film and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. and directed by Ajay Karthik, will witness its world premiere on UTV Movies Sep 25.

"It was a wonderful experience to watch the film with the kids of ADAPT. Their reactions to the film were overwhelming and we had a truly enjoyable time together," Anupam told reporters here.

Set in a small village of India, "Havai Dada" revolves around the loving relationship between a man and his granddaughter. He has never travelled in an aeroplane and it`s his granddaughter who tries to fulfil his childhood dream.

It`s a story that encourages the kids to emerge stronger from their struggles and is sure to motivate them," said Sameer Ganapathy, business head, UTV Movies.
