Bachchan also narrates the anthem.
“As the narrative in Bachchan sir’s voice goes, ‘waqt hi to hai, guzar Jayega (it’s just time, it will pass)’. We will have a plethora of emotions to indulge in, and realise there’s always a greater sunrise after the darkest of nights. I am happy to be a part of the song where everyone has come together, to communicate that ‘this too shall pass’,” said Ghoshal.
“Though these are testing and difficult times, we all have come together to instill hope and courage through this song ‘Guzar Jayega’. We are in this together, and this too shall pass. Stay home and stay safe,” added Leone, who is currently in Los Angeles with her husband and three children.
The song was released on International Nurses Day and has since garnered more than 435,000 views on YouTube.
