‘Putting a smile on the faces of our soldiers’an initiative for the BSF Jawans by COLORS' KhatraKhatraKhatra

MUMBAI: It is said that the greatest sacrifices is when you sacrifice your own happiness for the sake of others. In a similar manner, our Indian soldiers leave their personal lives behind to guard the Indian border just to protect us. While they keep their country in mind before anything else, COLORS KhatraKhatraKhatra, a show known to spread a wave of laughter undertook a special initiative to spread smiles across the faces of our BSF Jawans. After entertaining the audience with over 100 episodes of fun, the queen of comedy Bharti Singh along with her comedy brigade – Harsh Limabachiyaa, AvikaGor, Aditya Narayan and Gauravvisited the Attari border and BSF camp in Amritsar to salute the BSF Jawans.The gathering was witnessed by 35,000 audience at the Indo-Pak border who were gleaming with laughter as the actors put up their best show for them.

As the format of the show, involves playing a lot of tasks and pranks, the actors took these specially curated challenges to BSF jawans officials as well, who participated in them with true sportsman spirit.  Not only did they meet the officials, they also met with their families and performed several activities with them which are very popular in the show like Mic Spray, Musical Chair, Denture, Chinese whisper, Pictionary and many more.  The officers and their families had a joyful evening and were seen cheering for the actors and having an enjoyable time with them. 

Commenting on her experience, Bharti Singh said, “I had an overwhelming experience to meet and spend time with our BSF jawans officials and their families.  To be able to bring joy to them instilled a sense of satisfaction in me as they are the ones whose selfless services keep us secured.  I am really inspired by each one of them of being so fearless, courageous, and such selfless human beings.”

Harsh Limbachiyaa added, “We make so many excuses in our day to day life when we are not able to access or get through certain things, but these officers don't get to meet their families for months in order to keep the country safe. In our own way we just wanted to thank them and spread joy among them as what they do for us, can never be repaid in any form. I am very humbled to see smiles on their faces and thank COLORS and the entire KhatraKhatraKhatra team who helped in making this happen. When we saw them enjoying our act, we knew that our mission was accomplished.”

Aditya Narayan said, “This is extremely a memorable experience for me and something that I’ll never forget. This visit gave me even more percent of patriotism in me as BSF is the first line of defence when it comes to any type of threats protecting from our neighbouring country.  At the same time, it was an absolute honour to spend time with them.  This is the first outdoor shoot that KhatraKhatraKhatra had and we are fortunate to having spent moments with the BSF Jawans on the special occasion of Independence Day. I can never forget the grilling sessions that these soldiers have in the morning, it just portrays their discipline, commitment and most importantly love for our country. I am going back home with a sense of peace that our male and female Jawans are there to take care and protect us."

AvikaGor said, "This was my first time I visited Attari border and BSF camp.  My grandfather was a part of Indian air force and used to keep telling me stories about Indian army and our soldiers.  I still remember he used to tell me that I should once at least experience the and see the parade live.  I think his dream came true. I feel very proud that I got the opportunity to not only meet the BSF Jawans but also fortunate to perform various task with them. I want to specially thanks Bharti & Harsh as because of their hard work we were able to make this possible."
