Salman Khan is finding creative ways to keep himself busy and simultaneously raise awareness around the Covid-19 pandemic. The Dabaang star recently released a song called Pyar Karona, which aims to spread the message of becoming emotionally strong while maintaining a social distance, reported Times of India.
Written and performed by Khan, the song was produced by Sajid Wajid and co-written by Hussain Dalal. The actor shared the song on both Spotify and Youtube, while also uploading a teaser on Instagram with the caption “Emotionally pass raho aur physically duurr raho na (stay close emotionally and distant physically .”
According to Khan, he recorded his audio on the phone and sent it over for mixing. “I had this tune in my mind for a song. The word karona (do) fitted in really well. So, we decided to jam on it, and in about five minutes we had our lyrics in place. The lyrics express exactly what I want to tell the world — Pyaar karona, madad karona, sabr rakho na (love, help and be patient).”
Since the lockdown, the Radhe star has been quite active on his Youtube channel. He recently posted a video in which a recreated scene from his 1989 hit Maine Ney Pyar Kia, with a modern-day twist. The video had a ‘Then vs Now’ treatment showing the original scene where Salman is kissing a lipstick mark on a mirror that was left by Bhagyashree’s character first.
It then jumps to the new rendition where, instead of kissing the lipstick mark, Salman goes cleans it up by rubbing it off with a disinfectant, perhaps sending a social awareness message for coronavirus.
