Saran, during her interaction, shared that the blind people do all the routine work just like normal people due to the fact that their sense of touch improves due to the lack of vision. The actress also shared that there are blind people working in her spa, who do daily chores like working, travelling alone, cooking and other such activities. Shriya also appealed that people must stop calling them physically handicapped just due to the fact that they do not have the ability to see but manage to do all the work with ease. The actress also said that such people being blind have better senses than sighted people.
