Farhan Akhtar recites corona version of Zinda Ho Tum from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Like many Bollywood celebrities, Farhan Akhtar often takes to social media, urging fans to stay indoors and help fight the novel coronavirus. However, this time the Rock On!! actor has added a poetic twist to his message.

 

Farhan penned a corona version of the famous poem Toh Zinda Ho Tum, used in his film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. He shared a video of him reciting the poem, which read like this:

 

"Chahro pe mask pehen rahe ho, toh zinda ho tum

 

Houseparty pe yaaron se baat kar rahe ho, toh zinda ho tum

 

Chheenko ke jhoko se tum door rehna sikho,

 

Bheed mein shamil hone ko nahi kehna sikho

 

Har insaan se tum milo bandh ke apne baahein

 

Har pal exit sign ko tarasti dikhengi nigaahein

 

Jo pocket mein sanitiser rakh rahe ho, toh zinda ho tum

 

Chahro pe mask pehen rahe ho, toh zinda ho tum "

 

Farhan's father Javed Akhtar wrote many poems for the 2011 film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, one of those poems was Toh Zinda Ho Tum. Farhan's character recited these poems in the film.
