Top Bollywood celebrities attended the launch of a new star studded video of the country's national anthem in Mumbai on Saturday.
The video, shot by film-maker Rajeev Walia, features the biggest cast with over 70 artists.
Bollywood actor, Mukesh Khanna, said the video was made with the aim of imbibing the feeling of patriotism among the children of this generation.
"It is a very important thing that we should teach our nation's children especially, and that modern crowd who listen only to western and hippie songs and remember only pop songs, the national anthem of India. So a launch of this newly prepared national anthem and playing it across screens at various theatres is very important. I add, that this should be made a compulsory teaching for them," said Khanna.
Other celebrities included in the video are magician P.C. Sorcar, classical dancer Sujata Mohapatra, cricketers Irfan and Yusuf Pathan, wrestler Sangram Singh and singers Alka Yagnik, Anu Malik and Javed Ali.
