The two will be representing India at the global fundraising event, with Shah Rukh Khan probably being chosen because of him being the most recognisable star in Bollywood, and Priyanka for her international stature.

The event, called “One World: Together at Home,” will be shown on multiple television and digital networks around the world on April 18. It will be hosted by late-night television comedians Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert, reported Reuters. 

The celebrity line-up, presumably also including SRK and PeeCee, has been curated with the help of Gaga herself, who has already raised $35 million to help with the crisis.

“The money will benefit WHO’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. Their goal is to raise funds in advance of the upcoming telecast so viewers can “sit back and enjoy the show you all deserve,” said Gaga.
