Meanwhile, Anupam Kher, sharing the video said: “Some kids in a village in India have formed their band together. This band does not have any modern equipment. And what a tune they have chosen! of the military band. Because they know that the real power lies in the heart!! Hail to these children. Where are these children?”

Pakistani singer corrected the Bollywood actor in the tweet. He further added that he is in touch with these children. Also, he has sent them the required musical instruments as well.

“Sir @AnupamPKher 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 in fact from Hunza, Pakistan. I am in touch with them and have sent them all the musical instruments they need,” said Roy while responding to Anupam Kher.

Back in 2020, another veteran actor, Naseeruddin Shah, had blasted the BJP government and its Bollywood loyalists for its discriminatory Citizenship Amendment Act in an interview with The Wire.

In his diatribe against Anupam Kher-a Bollywood actor and BJP loyalist, Naseeruddin Shah said he does not need to be taken seriously and called him ‘clown’ and ‘sycophant’.

“Someone like Anupam Kher has been very vocal. I don’t think he needs to be taken seriously. He’s a clown. Any number of his contemporaries from NSD and FTII can attest to his sycophantic nature. It’s in his blood, he can’t help it”, said Shah in his explosive tirade against Kher.
