The series called ‘Music for a Cause’. The telecast of the mini series will start from 25th March at 19:00 (UK). The show featuring Amitabh Bachchan will be aired on 1st April.
The show will also feature two visually challenged girls who presented a letter to Bachchan wishing his mother Teji Bachchan a speedy recovery.
