The former Indian cricket team captain and the legendary batsman, Sachin Tendulkar has provided his voice to a song, dedicated to the Indian Prime Minister Modi’s Swachh Bharat (the cleaner India) campaign.
The popular music director Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has composed the song; lyrics are provided by Mukesh Bhatt, penned by Prasoon Joshi and sung by Shankar Mahadevan, Babul Supriyo and many other singers. The song was unveiled on 2nd October, the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi.
While recording this song, Sachin reportedly provided his few suggestions as well. This is also confirmed by him on his official page, where he writes, “Lending my voice, support and more to#SwachhBharat, with@Shankar_Live, @Prasoon_Joshi, @SuPriyoBabul – Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt)".
Earlier, in a Facebook post also, the master blaster is seen in the recording studios with Shankar Mahadevan, Prasoon Joshi and Babul Supriyo.
Importantly, the celebrities across the diverse fields of art, cinema, sport, politics, etc. are pooled in to make the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan campaign a public movement, ever since the campaign was announced the previous year, also on the Gandhi Jayanti day.
