The Indian National Anthem is trending on Social Media thanks to the mesmerising instrumental rendition by pianist Shayan Italia and the hashtag #IWouldStandForThis is doing the rounds.

The tribute has broken all records on YouTube, just in time for Independence Day.

A beautiful rendition of the Indian National Anthem, Jana Gana Mana on piano is currently creating a sensation on YouTube with 43.08 million views and counting, becoming the most viewed online video of any country’s national anthem ever!


Until #IWouldStandForThis, the record for the Indian Anthem was under nine million views.


Every single one of the 200 plus individuals and institutions globally involved in this project have worked incredibly hard to make the initiative #IWouldStandForThis a reality. They have my immense respect and gratitude. They have all come on board with a single purpose: to help me realise my dream of honouring my mum in the most respectful way I possibly can. It makes me feel incredibly proud to be born in India," Shayan Italia. 


Interestingly, not just Indians, but people across the globe are appreciating the instrumental rendition. But Shayan and the team want more. “This strong foundation is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity for showcasing India’s unity. We have now set up the #71for71challenge to garner 71 million views in time for independent India turning 71 years old on August 15. I have done my bit and now it’s for all of India to stand as one to beat the #71for71challenge,” he concludes.


Who is Shayan Italia?



Shayan Italia, the Hyderabad-born pianist-songwriter and entrepreneur, currently settled in Mumbai, made #IWouldStandForThis which honours the Indian National Anthem in 8K resolution on the limited edition Steinway D-274 concert grand piano, to pay homage to his mother and to befit the Anthem’s majesty and stature. #IWouldStandForThis brings together cross-cultural music and within a few days of its listing, has caught the world’s interest. He gained publicity by selling portions of his future earnings on eBay and with his song "Reflection".

Shayan started Biryani360 in Mumbai on March 1, 2015 and sold it in March 2016.
