Air pollution claims thousands of lives on a daily basis and has become a growing concern world over. It is primarily caused by the burning of fossil fuel, thereby leading to emissions, finally causing air pollution as we know it today. Pollution has been around us for decades and its consequences can prove to be deadly. We have been unable to contain the dastardly aftermath of the growing menace. According to the United Nations Organization (UNO), approximately 4.2 million people die prematurely, as a result of exposure to ambient air pollution.

The 'Hawa Aane De' video, which is an initiative led by Asif Bhamla led Bhamla Foundation, was launched by Dia Mirza. It has been penned by Swanand Kirkire and sung by popular names like Shaan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shankar Mahadevan, Vishal Dadlani, Sunidhi Chauhan, and Ayushmann Khurrana.

Talking about the same, Asif Bhamla, the President of the foundation said, “The members of the entertainment fraternity have come together with Bhamla Foundation, with a hope to make a lasting difference, so our sons and daughters can breathe air that won’t harm them. This is the time now to make a difference, before the air we breathe, kills us! And hence the initiative.”

In the previous year, the foundation created the Beat Plastic Pollution anthem on the lines of the United Nation’s ‘Beat Plastic Pollution’ initiative. The anthem based on the need to curb plastic usage as the name suggests garnering a lot of traction.
