Coronavirus has affected everyone and it is our duty as Indians to stand by each other and protect our fellow brothers and sisters in crisis. Muskurayega India captures this beautiful spirit of unity and as soon as I heard the song, I agreed to be a part of this initiative. Akshay sir has been one of the most prominent torchbearers, who have come forward to help so many people and he has again lent his support. I thank him and producer Jackky Bhagnani for galvanising our industry for our country."

Talking about the sincere initiative, Vicky Kaushal says, "This initiative is a small effort to spread some hope and positivity in these times of crisis. I also want to encourage people to work from home, to help in the relief of those affected by covid-19 or to even stabilise the economy of our nation. This is the time for us to be united. We are in this together and we will win this together. I am happy to be associated with this cause."

Keeping social distancing in mind we all did our little parts from our own homes and it's important everyone stays at home and stays safe as well".
