Kher's performance was part of the Hampi Utsav, a three-day festival that began on January 27. He also shared a video on Instagram about his festival experience. He did not, however, make any mention of the attack. "The whole Vijayanagar was seen singing, swaying, and becoming emotional with @bandkailasa as they paid Kailasa musical homage to Puneet Rajkumar ji, a song series shot on him and presented our Kannada songs. The ending #KailasaLiveInConcert of #hampiutsav2023 was quite emotional. @kkaladham, "He typed in Hindi.

The three-day Hampi Utsav, which started last Friday, is an annual event organised by the Karnataka government to honour the former Vijayanagara Empire's legacy.

The cultural festival featured performances by well-known Bollywood and Sandalwood actors. Sandalwood vocalists Arjun Jannya, Vijaya Prakash, Raghu Dikshit, Anannya Bhath, and Bollywood playback singers Arman Mallik and Kailash Kher, were among the many superstars who performed.

Basavaraj Bommai, the chief, dedicated it. The celebration was complex, with four stages set up: Gayatri Peeta, Eduru Basavanna Vedike, Hampi Virupaksheshwar Vedike, and Sasuvekalu Vedike.
