VLC Media Player sub title not showing

My OS is win 10 Prof 64 bit and I am tryiing to play a foreign DVD movie called Mahabaratha which is in the Indian language (Hindhi) but has English subtitles.  My player is the VLC Media Player version 2.2.6 umbrella.  
When I played initially the English subtitles showed and then it did not subsequently.  I have been meddling with the preferences, sub title, but to no results.  Maybe I am not setting the settings correctly.  
Attached is the subtitles screen, and perhaps the experts can suggest what values to use.
Also since the VLC does not play the DVD automatically, I am at a lost to select the file to play first, attached is a list of the files too.  
How and which file does one select to play the DVD.  Thank u, regards and happy holidays

Did you add the subtitle file in VLC? When you open the App in the top menu you have subtitle tab, add subtitle file

The best is to use e.g. BSPlayer (my favourite btw). You just drag and drop your subtitles and that's it. I've never had any issues with it. Just consider it.
I used to have issues with subtitles for VLC and many more video players but BSPlayer has solved it for good.

or right click on the video and select the subtitle

Run VLC Media Player. Insert the DVD, and it should start the video automatically. If not, click on the Media, select the Open Disc , choose the option for DVD, and then click on the Play button.  
Now you can access the DVD's menu .

Now you can right click on the screen and select any language / Subtitle which is supported by that DVD.
