The song shows the emotional scenes of doctors, policemen and drivers who are working tirelessly to save lives by putting in long and gruelling hours to highlight the efforts going in to fight Covid-19. Akshay Kumar appears at the end of the video with a touching tribute, saying:
“We had heard doctors were the incarnation of God but now it seems God has himself come in the form of doctors.”
Akshay Kumar’s heart of gold has been one of the shining lights during one of the world’s darkest periods. This has included an incredible donation of Rs 2.5 crore (£2.5 million) to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s PM CARES FUND as well as getting some of Bollywood’s biggest names to join him for the song #MuskurayegaIndia to raise spirits across the country.
