The video starts with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s strong words that the nation will fight against COVID-19 and the countrymen will emerge victorious in the battle. Then, Vishal Mishra, the music composer and singer of the anthem (Vishal has earlier sang for films like Qarib Qarib Single and Veere De Wedding) croons the number in the background, which is joined by several A-list Bollywood stars such as Akshay, Kartik Aaryan, Tiger Shroff, Ayushmann Khurrana, Siddharth Malhotra, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Shikhar Dhawan, Kriti Sanon, Ananya Pandey and others. However, all the stars are in the confinement of their homes and most of them have shot either in their balcony or terrace. Lyrics has been penned by Kaushal Kishore.
“At a time like this when our days are clouded with uncertainty and life has come to a standstill, with the help of this song, we want the people to be certain of one thing, that everything will go back to normal, all we need is a united stand against COVID-19. Aur phir Muskurayega India,” says Akshay Kumar.
Curated by Jackky Bhagnani’s music label JJust Music and composed, Muskurayega India is a symbol of the country’s spirit of solidarity, battling against the coronavirus pandemic, which has 4,281 positive cases till now and 111 deaths. The lyrics are soulful and more so, would definitely give one an adrenaline rush in order to come together as one nation.
“This song is a humble tribute to bring smiles to the faces of all Indians. I personally felt the only thing that helps in times of uncertainty is hope so we came up with this song. A big big thank you to all our friends who helped us bring this together. All proceeds from this song will go into supporting the central & state govt’s efforts to fight the virus. This is just a small tribute to the spirit of our country, to the power of 1.3 billion Indians,” says Jackky Bhagnani.
