He swims, paints, performs acrobatics – all in a wheelchair!
Mohammad Imran Qureshi was 17 when he lost his vision due to multiple sclerosis. This is a long-term disease that attacks the brain and central nervous system.
Imran later got his vision back but was later struck with paralysis in both his legs and had to use a wheelchair. Eventually, Imran started performing various acrobatics and synchronized acts.
In 2014, he got the role of a disabled army commando in Akshay Kumar’s film Holiday. He is also a painter, a swimmer, a netball player, and has won much praise. He even won a gold medal in a state- level swimming contest held in Jalandhar last year.
Imran now wants others like him to become self- reliant and make their families proud.
