New Delhi , January 4, 2017
Actor Aamir Khan's wife and filmmaker Kiran Rao has made her singing debut in a music video for 'Jalyukt Shivar Abhiyan' (JSA).
This flagship project of the 'Paani Foundation' owned by the couple, in association with the Maharashtra Government, aims at making villages drought- free in five years through water conservation programmes.
The talented film-maker will sing in Marathi language.
She will be singing for the promotional video of the campaign, which will be helmed by National award winning director Nagraj Manjule.
The video will feature Aamir Khan and Marathi blockbuster Sairat, Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru besides other celebs. Guru Thakur has penned the lyrics while composers Ajay and Atul have composed the music.
The idea of promoting the campaign via a video was decided by Aamir and Kiran to raise awareness with a music video.
Aamir Khan also announced the Satyamev Jayate Water Cup this year, a competition among villages to conserve water.
The previous year had as many as 116 villages that took part in the competition, which created an annual water storage capacity of 1,368 crore litres in three talukas of the state.
Aamir witnessed tremendous success with the test project and the competition will take place from April 8 to May 22.
Top three villages across the state will get cash prizes of 50 lakh, 30 lakh and 20 lakh respectively.
