Singer Hrishikesh Chury who is currently seen on Zee TV SaReGaMaPa as a Grand Jury was roped in for National Anthem along with Singers Hariharan, Roop Kumar Rathod, Amruta Fadnavis, Harshdeep Kaur & Divya Kumar. Anthem titled ‘Mitti’ features the farmers from different states of India. The idea behind making this video was to highlight the farmers who toil tirelessly to feed not just their family but the country. The National Anthem has been played in 4900 theatre screens across India every day from 15th August 2017.
Speaking about the anthem Hrishikesh said, “We all have grown up eating amazing food; be it in home or restaurants. At the end of the day the main credit goes to the backbone of the country – our farmers. I have an NGO called Hallway Foundation which fights for various causes and one such cause is monitoring the wastage of food. I personally don’t like it when people waste food because what we are eating is the result of the day and night efforts of our Farmers.”
