The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the country in ways that were never heard or seen. The deadly virus has killed 2109 people with over 62,000 confirmed cases in India so far. People are living under self-isolation, observing the protocols of lockdown and trying to hope for better every day. A beautiful song telling them that this all will be over soon just adds little sanity in the chaos. Varun, the creator of the song, told the daily, “We felt that people need some hope and a sense of unity in these testing times. Hence, we came up with this song. We are fortunate that Mr Amitabh Bachchan liked our concept and offered his support.”
As many as 50 singers have sung the song. Comedian Kapil Sharma, who has been actively participating in the social work to help the needy these days, talked about how this song will give goosebumps to all. He said, “When I first heard this song, it gave me goosebumps. Amit ji’s narrative filled me with courage. The lyrics will speak to you.”
For actor Sunny Leone, this is the time to stay together and let each other know that no one is alone. She added, “We have come together to instill hope and courage through this song. We are in this together and this, too, shall pass. Stay home and stay safe.”
