As per the incoming reports, Indian filmmakers Zoya Akhtar and Karan Johar are reportedly organizing an online concert to raise funds for COVID-19 Relief Concert. There is news that the concert will apparently feature some of the biggest names both from the Hindi film industry and Hollywood, such as Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, The Jonas Brothers, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and so on.
As coronavirus lockdown is in effect on a global scale. So, Zoya and Karan are organizing the from-home concert with multiple performances for ‘I for India’, to spread awareness about Coronavirus, help raise funds for the ‘Give India Foundation’, to support families affected and displaced by the lockdown, and to express gratitude to frontline workers fighting the pandemic.
As per a Mumbai Mirror report, the concert is said to include Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh, Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan, Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma, Arjun Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, and Saif Ali Khan. Hollywood star Will Smith, the popular band The Jonas Brothers, and singer Bryan Adams will also be joining them.
Not only them, but Indian musicians such as Vishal Dadlani, Asha Bhonsle, Sonu Nigam, Arijit Singh, Shreya Ghoshal, Pritam, Shekhar Ravjianni, lyricist Javed Akhtar and comedian Kapil Sharma, cricket stars like Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma will also be a part of it.
To make this multi starrer effort a success, all of these celebrities have been told to share short videos of themselves singing, dancing, performing standup, or making a speech. Zoya and Karan have reportedly been working on the concert for 2 weeks now.
A similar concert was organized sometime back this month in the USA, featuring more than 100 Hollywood celebrities and singers, called One World: Together At Home. Organized by Lady Gaga in collaboration with the WHO, the concert raised more than USD 127 million for COVID-19 relief.
The USA tops the list when it comes to nations most affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
