The main objective was to form a participative democracy in India by inspiring all qualified people to vote and make a knowledgeable choice during the Indian elections.

"We keep travelling to perform in the remotest parts of the country or make appearances because of the celebrity status but this is an opportunity to do my bit for the country even if it is just by increasing voter awareness and endorsing voter literacy in India representing my state," he further adds.
