In a heartwarming cross-border exchange, Pakistani singer-activist Shehzad Roy and Bollywood actor Anupam Kher cleared out a misunderstanding about a video of children from Hunza Valley. 

After Roy corrected Kher, who mistakenly wrote on Twitter that the video was from India, Kher replied on Twitter saying, “Dear Shehzad Roy! I stand corrected, my friend. I loved the video. Keep up the great work you are doing with these kids!! Love and prayers always!!”

Roy responded to the friendly tweet with, “Sir Anupam Kher, thank you. I am your fan and love the work you do. I will keep you updated about this lovely group of kids and their music.” On August 18, the Bollywood veteran shared a video of a bunch of talented child musicians performing in Hunza, Pakistan, using what appeared to be cans and water containers.

Lauding their dedication, Kher claimed the children were from a village in India. The Teri Soorat singer re-tweeted Kher’s share, thanking him for his concern and appreciation for the talent. He then corrected him politely saying, “Sir, thanks for sharing the video I shared a few days back. You say that these talented kids are from Bharat, a humble correction; these kids are from Hunza, Pakistan. I am in touch with them and have sent them all the musical instruments they need.”Roy had shared the same video on August 11 to ask his fans to find the whereabouts of these kids so he could provide them with the instruments they required.
