New Delhi, Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam performed in a live concert here Sunday to raise funds for a campaign against child labour in the country.
The concert titled Pukaar saw the audience, consisting mainly of youngsters, going crazy with excitement and cheering while standing on chairs, while Nigam churned out his chartbuster songs including “Shukran Allah” (“Kurbaan”), “Aal Izz Well” (“3 Idiots”), “Kal Ho Na Ho” (“Kal Ho Na Ho”) and “Soniye” (“Mujhse Shaadi Karogi”) among many others.
“This is a very noble cause and we need to continue this campaign till each and every child labourer in this country is given back their normal childhood,” said Nigam.
The event was organised by NGOs Divine and Loksathi as part of their campaign to eradicate child labour and rehabilitate the children forced to work.
The money collected from the show will be spent on the rehabilitation and education of child labourers.
