New Delhi, April 11 (IANS) Various Indian artistes came together to express support for PM-CARES Fund in an unusual way -- through a virtual music concert, at a time when the country is under lockdown in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Calling it ‘Sangeet Setu', legendary singer Asha Bhosle started it by saying, "Since all of you were getting bored, we thought we might as well come to your house."
In the video, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar is seen strumming an electric guitar, while singer Kailash Kher could be seen humming 'Kaun hai wo' during the 52-minute entertainer.
Alka Yagnik sang songs of the 90s as Anup Jalota dished out bhajans. The artistes came under the umbrella of ISRA. The clip concludes with Akshay Kumar sending out a plea to stay home and maintain social distancing.
Currently, India is under a 21-day nationwide lockdown which ends on April 14. Chances are high that it may get extended, given the growing number of Covid-19 cases in the country.
BJP telecast the entire show from its official Twitter handle, with the caption: "Live: #SangeetSetu, a virtual musical concert by 18 great Indian Artistes to support #PMCARES Fund."
Within two hours, the post garnered 19,000 views.
