It’s Independence Day today. Currently, in lockdown, the patriotic and positive spirit we share on this day is still very much free. A few musicians and actors from Bollywood have joined hands to spread a message that everyone in the country needs to hear with a song titled ‘We Are One.’
Actor Namit Das, playback singer Shaan, Sonu Nigam, Harshdeep Kaur and Nakash Azeez, tabla maestro Zakir Hussain and singer-musicians Salim-Sulaiman have come together in a music video that aims at spreading awareness about the eradication of racism and discrimination in our country.
While the world is fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, social evils as racism and discrimination continue to be prevalent. On Independence Day, these celebrities have united with a non profit organisation, CITTA, that has brought together humanitarians to raise awareness about societal ills and combat them.
Talking about it Namit Das says “I feel it is extremely important to make these big challenges of human existence a conversation in the public domain. What better way to spread awareness about them than through music?
He continued, “‘We are one’ irrespective of caste, culture, religion, creed and colour. As humans, we need to do better and empathise with each other. This is the core message of the music video.”
Besides the above-mentioned musicians, actors like Jaideep Ahlawat, Abhishek Banerjee, Rakesh Bedi, Yuvika Chaudhary and Prince Narula too will feature in the movie. A few personalities from the sports world and other walks of life will also make an appearance in Independence Day special video.
