Singer Neha Kakkar is giving Rs 3 lakh to the family of a labourer who went missing after the recent deluge within the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand.
In the upcoming weekend on the sets of “Indian Idol Season 12”, viewers will see showbiz couple Harsh Limbachiyaa and Bharti Singh hosting the show for the primary time, for the special episode “India Ki Farmaish”, during which the contestants will sing what fans wish.
Before working on the song, contestant Pawandeep said: “Today, i am singing the song that has been composed by my father Suresh Rajan. The title is ‘Malva mein kaan karu talash’ (an Uttarakhandi song).”
“It are going to be a tribute to those that are missing thanks to the glacier which broke at Chamoli District, and where many labourers lost their families,” he added.
A family that supported Pawandeep within the show depends on a labourer, their only earning member. The singer, incidentally, had requested Uttarakhand chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawatji to assist to the families of labourers whose families were suffering from the calamity.
After Pawandeep’s performance, Neha Kakkar told him: “You are a tremendous singer, which we all know. But you’re a tremendous person, too. As you’re supporting the missing labourers’ families, and have urged everyone to assist their families, i’m with you during this mission, i might wish to donate three lakh rupees to the family of our missing labourer in Uttarakhand. I urge everyone to return in support and help the families.”
The singer added that this is often a calamity and it’s our duty to assist the families.
