The Punjabi ‘living legend’ and the King of Punjabi music Gurdas Maan is making news these days for a different reason.
Very recently, he launched an ‘anti-drugs campaign’. This is started as an initiative to curb the usage of drugs in Punjab and its ill effects on the budding youth of the state. He reckons that it’s an easy accessible technique to popularise the message.
This campaign includes 3 nominations, just as in- ALS ice bucket challenge. Gurdas Maan himself kicked off this drive in Chandigarh and asked people to make everyone aware of such ill-habits.
He asked people to join him by:
- Using hash-tags (#gmagainstdrugs, #Thechallarequest) on social sites
- He wants people to sing his most famous song “Challa” and then leave a message against drugs in a video, and upload it afterwards
- To start with, he also nominated popular singer and rapping sensation- Yo Yo Honey Singh
