Coronavirus has created a huge mess all around the world and in India, many people have faced losses in their business especially the daily wage earners who have lost their sole mode of income. Several Bollywood celebs like SRK, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Hritik Roshan, Deepika Padukone, Katrina to name a few have come forward and donated to the PM cares fund to help the needy. Now recently Karan Johar and Zoya Akhtar organized a concert called I for India to entertain everyone across the country and it was highly successful and the donations received from the online concert were given to the COVID-19 relief fund. Now there is another initiative taken by Farhan Akhtar, Aamir Khan, Shankar Mahadevan and others where they have teamed up for something new and exciting.
Berklee Indian Ensemble of Berklee College of Music have joined hands with them for the cause #BIXCOVIDFUND and used the title track of Dil Chahta Hai in the most creative way. Aamir who was the lead actor of the movie along with composer Shankar Mahadevan and Farhan who was the director of the movie joined the members of the college for this amazing initiative. The video starts with Aamir introducing the song and calling it his favourite and then we can also see Farhan and Shankar singing the track. The song features other artists as well like Neeti Mohan, Zakir Hussain, Salim Merchant, etc. The members of the song have used pluck cards mentioning what their heart desires as they sing the amazing track. Farhan took to social media to share this video and captioned it as “Dil Chahta Hai is back, and HOW! Thrilled to collaborate on this funky version by @Shankar_Live with @berkleeindiaexchange.
