Kamal Haasan has never been afraid of voicing out his opinions. His political career is a testament to his thoughts and his yearning for a better way of life. In these tough times, as the world finds itself struggling to deal with the novel coronavirus, the actor-politician couldn’t help but capture his thoughts, fury and empathy in a motivational song.
Watch him with Venkatesh in Eenadu here:
The song is titled Arivum Anbum which translated to ‘knowledge and love’. Written by Kamal Haasan, the music has been composed by Ghibran. The two have earlier collaborated on Uttama Villain and Papanasam. Apart from the two, the music video, directed by Kamal Haasan, has several leading singers and actors lending their vocals.
Yuvan Shankar Raja, Anirudh Ravichander, Bombay Jayashree, Shankar Mahadevan, Sid Sriram, Devi Sri Prasad, Andrea Jeremiah, Mugen Rao also sing bits and part of the song. Actors Siddharth, Shruti Haasan’s love for music isn’t new to us. But watching them stand in solidarity truly is a hair-raising experience.
