This Independence Day, Farhan Akhtar along with many other artists will collaborate with the Robin Hood Army to feed the underprivileged in both Pakistan and India. The organisation works to channelise surplus food from restaurants towards feeding the lesser fortunate people on both sides of the border.
Mumbai Mirror reports, Farhan Akhtar, Uday Benegal, Vishal Dadlani, Vasudha Sharma, Clinton Cerejo and several other artists will sing the Mission 500k anthem, titled “Realign”, with teams of volunteers in Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Mumbai, Delhi and Chennai.
“Our teams across Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore are chalking out major plans for the 14th. What we need is not monetary contributions, just the time and compassion of our fellow citizens,” stated Sarah Afridi, who set up the RHA in Pakistan.
Farhan Akhtar is all set to spread the Independence Day spirit!
“The Robin Hood Army’s desire to feed half a million people across India and Pakistan this year on their respective Independence Days is an effort I wholeheartedly support,” Akhtar was quoted as saying according to leading publication Mumbai Mirror.
“I appeal to people everywhere to participate in this incredible initiative to help eradicate hunger and malnutrition. It’s our world. We have to make it better,” he further added.
