Bollywood glitterrati attend launch of star-studded national anthem video
Top Bollywood glitterati attended the launch of a new star studded video of the country's national anthem here on Saturday.
The video features the biggest cast with over 70 artists and is shot by filmmaker, Rajeev Walia.
Bollywood actor, Mukesh Khanna, said the video was made with the aim of imbibing the feeling of patriotism among the children of this generation.
"It is a very important thing that we should teach our nation's children especially, and those modern crowds who listen only to western and hippie songs and remember only pop songs, the national anthem of India. So a launch of this newly prepared national anthem and playing it across screens at various theatres is very important. I add, that this should be made a compulsory teaching for them," said Khanna.
The featured celebrities reportedly include Vivek Oberoi, Shilpa Shetty, Tusshar Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Isha Koppikar and Mallika Sherawat.
Other celebrities included in the video are magician P.C. Sorcar, classical dancer Sujata Mohapatra, cricketers Irfan and Yusuf Pathan, wrestler Sangram Singh and singers Alka Yagnik, Anu Malik and Javed Ali.
