Akshay Kumar recently released the tribute version of Teri Mitti on his social media. The song was released to applaud all the healthcare personnel and workers fighting on the frontline and relentlessly working to battle COVID-19 in India. In the caption, Akshay Kumar also mentioned, “#TeriMitti Tribute - an ode to our heroes in white”.
The Teri Mitti tribute song starts with the video of a doctor smiling at the camera and then goes on to several other scenes that summarise the current situation due to the coronavirus outbreak. The song captures every blanket of scare and paranoia surrounding the coronavirus as it even has several scenes showcasing empty streets and people inside their homes.
