The one-minute video shared by the prime minister shows the Mumbai-based singer starting the popular song in Malayalam. Then he continues it in Telegu, Kannada, Tamil, and concludes in Hindi.
Soon after he received the admiration from PM Modi, the singer wrote, “Thank you so much for the appreciation sir. Means a lot. So glad it reached you and you enjoyed it.”

Earlier, businessman Anand Mahindra had shared the same video and heaped praises on the young Punjabi singer as he wrote, “just beautiful. This is what an UNBREAKABLE, united India sounds like…”
