I deserved to be nominated as a brand ambassador of World Book of Records: Daler Mehndi

Mumbai: Popular for songs like Tunak Tun Tunak Tun, Sade Naal Raho Ge to Aish Karoge, Ho Gayi Te Balle Balle, which still rule hearts, Punjabi singer Daler Mehndi has been nominated as a brand ambassador of World Book of Records - London. The announcement has brought India pride and honor as the committee of WBR has acknowledged the contribution of Daler Mehndi to the world of music.

Speaking exclusively to Radioandmusic, Daler Mehndi exclaimed, “I am honored beyond words to be nominated as a brand ambassador of the World Book of Records-London, when people dream of being nominated for its awards category. While Padmashree and Padmabhushan are much sought after honors, this one is a bigger blessing for me as it puts India on the international map.”

WBR works through a network in UK, USA, Australia, Mauritius, and India, honoring distinguished work and records in each field, and more importantly, for outstanding contribution to humanity and universal peace. The singer said that as an ambassador he echoes this policy of WBR, “The certification is for people, who have achieved excellence not just in their own field, but have also contributed towards humanity at large. Everyone works hard and achieves success in their field, but one should not forget his responsibility towards humanity.”

The large-hearted singer leads this clause with a fine example of himself. Beyond the exuberant image of being the King of Punajbi Pop-music, Daler Mehndi has a humane side, which a few know while many might be unaware. He shares a few of his humanitarian cause, “In 1998-1999, I had planted over eight lakh trees in Delhi. When there was a horrid earthquake in Gujarat in 2001, I had funded for building houses for the homeless. I have also contributed to the welfare of families of the martyrs of Kargil war from my personal savings.”

While history and politics have created fences, India has always come forward to help Pakistan. Daler shares a heart-warming memory from the dream project with Imran Khan, the current Prime Minister and legendary cricketer of Pakistan. “I remember doing many shows and raising funds for Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital, cancer and research center built by Imran Khan in the memory of his mother. The funds raised were almost equivalent to five crore INR.”

The family is also ecstatic about the news of Daler as Brand Ambassador of WBR too. Daler’s son-in-law and Punjabi sensation Navraj Hans congratulated his father-in-law on social media.

Lastly, speaking fondly of Hans Raj Hans, Daler expresses, “Not just an incredible artist, he is a man with a clean image, suiting his Sufi persona.”

Daler Mehndi has recently joined Hans Raj Hans as a member of BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party) post joining politics.

Besides, Daler has also crooned a song that comes with the end credits of India’s first 3D movie, Chhota Bheem Kung Fu Dhamaka that released today. An expectedly high on energy song is dearer for Daler as he shares, “My youngest five-year-old daughter, Rabab has featured along with me in this song, making it even more special for me.”

The movie arrived timely during summer vacations, is conceived brilliantly with animation of international standards. Chhota Bheem Kung Fu Dhamaka has been released across 500 theatres and awaits a release in UAE post holy period of Ramazan.

Daler Mehndi’s current work resonates his vision of spreading goodness, “This movie teaches the children to be positive in any situation. Apart from this, there are small but important things like this song gives kids a message of eating Laddoos instead of harmful edibles like chocolate that makes kids hyper.”
