The world has been on a standstill since the coronavirus outbreak and celebrities are doing their best to help the government by contributing to monetary funds. While the nation remains under lockdown, government officials have been taking up the right measures to contain the spread of COVID-19. However, several parts of the nation are suffering from a shortage of medical equipment and monetary funds.
Celebrities from around the globe including John Legend, Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Chris Martin, David Beckham, and others successfully raised $127.9M for COVID-19 relief fund in a Global Concert.
Now, Bollywood filmmakers Karan Johar and Zoya Akhtar are coming up with a fundraiser to collect money to help India fight Coronavirus.
As per a Mumbai Mirror report, this fundraiser concert is called ‘I for India’ and will have many Bollywood stars performing from their homes. The money gathered will then be given to the Give India Foundation to support those who are displaced due to Coronavirus.
They have been told to share four-minute videos of themselves singing, dancing, making a speech or performing a standup. Zoya and Karan have been working on the two-hour concert for a few weeks already. The concert will also feature cricket stars Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and is expected to air on Facebook this weekend.
Meanwhile, a report also suggests that Alia Bhatt will be singing some of her popular songs while Hrithik Roshan will be singing a Kishore Kumar song and will also play the piano.
