In the desperate times of the pandemic, people from all walks of life have united to help the nation rise against the virus. Bollywood celebrities have also been constantly striving to use their resources to create awareness and generate funds to help needy people.
Leading non-profit organisations Global Kashmiri Pandit Diaspora (GKPD) and I Am Buddha Foundation in partnership with Sewa International Foundation, Kashyap Seva Foundation, US India Pragati Foundation and Anupam Kher Foundation have joined hands to raise funds for Covid affected orphans, widows, people with disabilities, the indigenous population, refugees, migrants, minorities and artists among others.
Talking about the concert, Pallavi Joshi stated, "Through times of abject distress and despair entertainment works as a balm on people's mind. For sometime people get lost in an imaginary world leaving their strife and sorrows behind. You know the smile that artists put on people's faces by their performances, I think that's greater than any money in the world. I'm greatly humbled by the response the singers and musicians have given us and that just goes to prove above the classes and the castes and creed that humanism reigns supreme. So please come forward and donate to this cause."
Vivek and Pallavi are confident that this collaboration will leave a lasting joy on its audience. It will not only be a great distraction in keeping them entertained after so long but also prove a way to connect with Bollywood lovers across the world.
