A message in the written word automatically becomes more interesting with a bit of music, dance and interesting lyrics in a video. That was how Shah Rukh Khan reacted to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarion call to Bollywood celebrities last month to spread the message of voting in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls. The actor shot an entertaining video to drive home the point of casting one’s vote and even Gauri Khan has now extended the message further by lending her support to it as she urged the citizens of the country to exercise the ‘power to change the world.’
In the video, sung by Shah Rukh, the actor calls voting a ‘responsibility’, the 'nation’s voice' and adds that the country moves forward according to the directions of our finger. With people from various age groups dancing and visuals of the applying the ink on the finger, catchy beats composed by Tanishk Bagchi and relevant lyrics by Abby Viral, the video drives home the point interestingly. SRK wrote, "PM sahib @narendramodi ne creativity ki liye bola tha. Main thoda late ho gaya video banane mein...aap mat hona Vote karne mein!!! ‘Voting is not only our Right, it is our Power.’ Please Use It. Thank u to @tanishkbagchi @abbyviral @parakramsinghr."
Gauri, too, wrote that we all have the 'power to change the world' and asked her fan and followers to exercise this power by voting. The interior designer-entrepreneur wrote, "‘Somewhere inside of all of us, is the power to change the world.’ Please exercise your power... please vote."
PM had on March 13 tweeted, "Urging @SrBachchan, @iamsrk and @karanjohar to creatively ensure high voter awareness and participation in the coming elections. Because...its all about loving your democracy (and strengthening it). :)"
Two phases of the Lok Sabha polls have been completed and five more phases are to be held till May 19, before the results are announced on May 23.
