The I for India initiative was organised by Give India, an organisation that is raising funds to help all those effected by the global pandemic, COVID 19. This at-home concert, with the help of celebrities from across the world gave common man a platform to donate for the livelihood of those who aren’t as privileged to have a constant supply for food or a roof over their heads. Bollywood biggies like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Rani Mukerji, Ranveer Singh and many more were a part of this noble cause. International artistes like Mindy Kaling, Lily Singh, Bryan Adams, Jack Black, Jonas Brothers, Will Smith and many more too contributed to this cause.
This at-home concert started with Aamir Khan and his wife Kiran Rao crooning together and giving out the message that started the initiative. We then saw an array of musical performances by singers like Badshah, Lisa Mishra, B Praak, Papon, Shankar, Ehsaan, Loy, Sonu Nigam, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal and many more.
Actors like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Twinkle Khanna held conversations with frontline medical workers and doctors on the panic around Coronavirus. They spoke of the what the future holds and how the medical staff is currently giving their all to fight the disease.
Varun Dhawan, along with Shiamak Davar’s crew put together a beautiful performance on several motivation songs. We also witnessed actors perform some beautiful songs during this Live. Hrithik Roshan played the piano, Parineeti Chopra sang Teri Mitti, Tiger Shroff crooned two Bollywood songs and finally, saving the best for the last, Shah Rukh Khan gave the finale performance with son, Abram.
A song titled, Sad Sahi Ho Jayega was the highlight of the concert and SRK sang and performed it with his little one. Banging their heads and talking about positivity in the lockdown, mixed with the obvious SRK wit, this was the perfect end to a brilliant initiative by Give India.
