Akshay Kumar recreates Teri Mitti song as an ode to our COVID-19 heroes
The most striking part of Teri Mitti is when these lyrics play on: "Sarhad pe jo wardi khaki thi, aab uska rang safed hua."
Mumbai: Akshay Kumar recently shared the song Teri Mitti on Twitter. A special version of Teri Mitti, which was first used in Akshay's 2019 film Kesari, has been released to pay tribute to the health workers of the country.
The 52-year-old actor took to social media and shared the song to pay tribute to the 'real heroes.'
Akshay shared the video saying, "Suna tha doctors bhagwan ka roop hote hai, lekin coronavirus ki iss ladhai mein dekh bhi lia. #TeriMitti Tribute - an ode to our heroes in white, out now."
The video of the song shows doctors, nurses and other medical stuff braving the novel coronavirus on the frontline and selflessly treating patients suffering from the Covid-19 infection.
It also shows pictures of doctors who were attacked while they collected samples from suspected Covid-19 patients in Indore. The video then shows people holding placards that read, "Stop violence against doctors."
The three-minute-fifty-one second song also shows policemen, drivers and other warriors who have been spending sleepless nights.
However, the most striking part of the tribute version of Teri Mitti is when these lyrics play on: "Sarhad pe jo wardi khaki thi, aab uska rang safed hua (The uniform at borders that was khaki, is white now)."
The video concludes with a glimpse of Kumar saying: "We had heard doctors were the incarnation of God but now it seems God has himself come in the form of doctors."
Akshay has been doing his bit to raise awareness on the deadly virus. He shared videos, appealing people to not step out of their homes. He has also pledged a donation of Rs 25 crore to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's coronavirus relief fund PM CARES.
