Tiger Shroff joins Y-Films & Brooke Bond Red Label for mental disability awareness

Brooke Bond Red Label 6-Pack Band 2.0 comprising six differently abled teens launches new single, ‘Dimaag Ke Taale Tod Na’.

The youth film studio of Yash Raj Films, Y-Films, has launched the band, Red Label 6-Pack Band 2.0, comprising six teens between the age of 13 to 18 years with special needs but with incredible music skills, drive and passion in partnership with Brooke Bond Red Label. The band was formed to build awareness and acceptance on mental health and disability. Bollywood actor-dancer-youth icon, Tiger Shroff, has joined hands for the cause.



Commenting on this, Shroff said, “Children are our future and it was so inspiring to get to know and perform with the 6-Pack Band. I love how each one of them takes each day as it comes with a smile. I think all of us can learn how to be more patient, understanding and accepting of all our differences and make this world a more inclusive place. I’m grateful to have been part of this for it has certainly taught me to value life a little more!”

The single is a thumping new Bhangra Pop track sung by the band, which also features Mika Singh and has been composed by Shameer Tandon with lyrics by Kumaar. It urges people to open their minds against biases, prejudice and accept people irrespective of their differences. The music video featuring Tiger Shroff has actually been inspired by a real-life incident involving a differently abled person who was bullied. An experience that most special needs people and their parents have been through at some stage. The video is directed by Y-Films’ Sakshi Gurnani, and the project is conceived and produced by Ashish Patil, Head of Y-Films curated by Shameer Tandon. The 6-Pack Band is here to show the world that no disability can hold you back if given the right kind of love and support.

General Manager, Brooke Bond Red Label, Hindustan Unilever says, “Brooke Bond Red Label believes in urging people to question their prejudices and open their minds to the possibilities that a more accepting world open up.
