The duo was promoting their upcoming film Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gaya on the talent based reality show
Singers Mika Singh and Shaan, who will be making their acting debuts in the upcoming musical comedy film Balwinder Singh Famous Ho Gaya, visited the sets of Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega (EKLKBK) recently. The singers who had gone to promote their film were so impressed with some performances that they gifted an amount of `2,07,000 to the contestants. Says Shaan, “It was Mika’s initiative actually. He decided to gift the contestants `21,000 and I also got inspired. I was particularly impressed by this sand artiste Hariharan (he drew Sachin Tendulkar’s life story in four sketches) and the girls who performed a skipping act through fire.
They were the prime contenders but they couldn’t make it to the next round and this was our way of encouraging them.” Mika, who has been running an NGO Divine Touch, which helps the girl child was also touched by the girls’ act and gifted `51,000. Says Mika, “For the last 15 years, I have been doing some social work but four years ago I decided to start a NGO to help girls who are poor, cannot afford education or have problems during marriage. I contribute 10 per cent of my earnings to the organisation.
When I went on the sets of EKLKBK I had not planned to donate money, but I was so impressed with the performances that on the spot I decided to gift money to encourage them. Even Shaan decided to be generous and donated `51,000 from his pocket.”
