The song starts with Aamir Khan who claims Dil Chahta Hai to be one of his favourite song till date. He wishes that the people suffering during these tough times should be relieved soon.

A total of 112 musicians, actors, industry leaders and Berklee students across 21 countries came together for this and have tried to send messages of hope and positivity to everyone through the song. Each one of them has showed his/her ‘DIL CHAHTA HAI’ moment.

The song has been presented by Berklee India Exchange and T Series. It is an initiative to support the marginalised Indian artists whose lives have been deeply affected due to Corona. Indian artists from folk musicians to instrument makers, everyone’s life has come to a standstill due to the lockdown. T Series will donate all the proceeds from this song for this special cause and will help support these artists in need.
