BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Amidst the perilous times of the coronavirus pandemic, global artistes assembled on a live platform for a charitable home-to-home fundraiser concert- ‘I for India concert’ to raise money for Giveindia COVID-19 relief fund this Sunday. Bollywood’s Greek God Hrithik Roshan, was also one of the artistes who was a part of this initiative and as a special sight, the actor sang Tera Jaisa Yaar Kahan with the accompaniment of a piano.
Now, the Super 30 actor spent over 7 hours practising the piano and singing. He is neither a professional singer nor a pianist but he put additional efforts and learnt the piano notes for this one, on his own. And he did mention that when he uploaded the video later on his official Instagram handle. So the equation goes as: Non pianist + non singer x 7 hours = 😐 (On phone speaker) and. 😬 (on headphones),” he posted on Instagram.

It is not easy to play the piano and sing together for someone who is new to both but Hrithik worked hard for this performance. However, it was during the quarantine days he had mentioned in one of his Instagram videos how he was on a “mission piano”.
The objective of the philanthropic concert was to pay tribute to those who are working on the frontlines and to provide 100% proceeds from the fundraiser concert to the India COVID Response Fund, to support on-ground relief efforts.
Amidst this lockdown, Hrithik who has music running in his family (his uncle is music composer Rajesh Roshan) has taken to it too and spends a lot of his time learning music on his own.
The effort made by Hrithik was very evident in his heartwarming performance that won many hearts. The actor also urged and inspired everyone to mark their donations.
Through these challenging times, Hrithik has time and again extended his support to the fight against COVID-19. Earlier he has bought N95 masks and other protective gear for BMC’s sanitation workers and donated for the coronavirus relief funds. He has also teamed up with a non-profit organisation Akshaya Patra to provide 1.2 lakh meals to old-age homes, daily-wage workers and lower income households across the country till lockdown ensues. And now, with this initiative, the War actor continues to inspire everyone and spread positivity.
