Punjabi singer and actor Gagan Kokri along with another Punjabi artiste Harsimran did some applause-worthy humanitarian work to help out the victims of Australian Bushfire that wreaked havoc in the continent-country few weeks ago.
While the world-over celebrities, social activists, politicians and even common public are doing their bit to help people as well as affected animals during the recent Australian wild bushfire, Australia-based Punjabi singer and actor Gagan Kokri also came forward to contribute towards the cause.
Along with Kokri, singer Harsimran also became a part of generating funds for the victims of Australian wildfire. The duo of Gagan Kokri and Harsimran actually performed live for a fund-raising event in the state of Victoria in Australia.
From this fund-raising live concert, these Punjabi singers were able to manage a huge sum of $54,123. The proceeds of this event will go towards the rehabilitation of over 2000 houses that got damaged in the bushfire.
It may be recalled that the Australian Bushfire didn’t just affect the human beings and their properties but killed more than 50 crore wild animals that got charred to death in this natural calamity.
While sharing a photo of the fund-raising event amount cheque, Gagan Kokri thanked the citizens of Melbourne for coming to watch their event which led towards a noble contribution.
In his Instagram post, Kokri said,
“Here u go ???? Thanx to all the INDIAN COMMUNITY of MELBOURNE ???? it’s $54,213 from BUSHFIRE RELIEF CONCERT for BUSHFIRE VICTIMS and its all coz of you ???? TUHADA sab da boht boht dhanwaad and I hope tuhanu sab nu parmaatma boht sukhi rakhe ????
On the other hand, Harsimran also penned down a heartfelt note before his live performance:

It is indeed an applause-worthy task accomplished by Punjabi singers Gagan Kokri and Harsimran, for which this duo is receiving a lot of respect from other Punjabi celebrities.
