Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who is riding high on the success of Badhaai Ho and Andhadhun is a perfect example of a multi-faceted star who has created a huge fan base across India with his choices of cinema, writing and music. This is the known fact that he is a versatile actor and he has several times proved his singing talent with his songs such as Paani Da Rang, Saadi Galli Aaja, Nazm Nazm, among other hit track that has touched our heart. Now, the Vicky Donor actor is looking forward to connecting with his fans through a live jamming session over music on Facebook. He is launching a unique, engaging, social media contest that will see him give an opportunity to amateur artists to jam with him.
Talking about the jam session, Ayushmann said in a statement, “I always wanted to do something that combines the power of music and social media. I have come across so many talented and gifted musicians on my social media platforms and I wanted to come up with an idea that enables me to connect with them and bond with them over music. I have named this property Jam Sessions – it’s simple and basically about artists improvising and performing with each other. Music has always been my first love and this project is very close to my heart. I’m really excited to meet and jam with diverse and super talented artists from across India!”
He further said, “Music truly has no boundaries and I intend to connect with as many artists as possible. I have partnered with Facebook for this activity. This platform has an incredible reach and will help me connect with these artists. This contest is not just limited to singers. Whoever wants to connect with me, will need to simply send me an unedited video of themselves singing or playing any musical instrument of their choice. Once the contest culminates, I will connect with a few lucky winners and we will make some music together. Through this process, I hope to present to you some really incredible artists and some beautiful music.”
Saket Jha Saurabh, Head of Entertainment Partnerships, Facebook India said, “Facebook has established itself as a platform of choice for celebrities to build their communities. It enables them to engage with their fans authentically, over common interests, and in turn, form a deeper connection with them. We are delighted to see Ayushmann use Facebook groups to bring people together through music, by creating an experience that’s interactive and social”
