Amidst the perilous times of the pandemic, global artists 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 on 3 May, 2020. Hrithik Roshan, was also one of the artists who were a part of this initiative and as a special sight, the actor sang a song with the accompaniment of a piano.
A source close to the event shared, “Hrithik spent over 7 hours practicing the piano and singing. He is neither a professional singer nor a pianist but he put additional efforts and learned the piano notes for this one, on his own.” 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.
The objective of the philanthropic concert was to pay tribute to those who are working on the frontlines and to provide 100 percent proceeds from the fundraiser concert to the India COVID Response Fund, to support on-ground relief efforts.
Here’s a video shared from the concert by a Hrithik Roshan fan club:

So the equation goes as: Non pianist + non singer x 7 hours = 😐 (On phone speaker) and. 😬 (on headphones). . . I FOR INDIA. .

Proud. 👏. @zoieakhtar @karanjohar
