Roy thanked the actor for resharing the video and corrected his assertion that the children were from India.

Singer Shehzad Roy recently took to social media to respond to a tweet by Bollywood actor Anupam Kher in which he'd shared a video of young children using tin cans and containers as musical instruments for their marching band.

The now viral video had been originally shared by Roy who'd asked about the whereabouts of the children upon seeing their talent. "Please somebody tell me where are these kids and I’ll give them all the instruments they need," he'd written on Instagram.

Roy's followers confirmed that the children were from Hunza in Pakistan upon the singer's request. Days later, the video was re-shared by Kher on Twitter. "Some kids in a village in India have formed their own band together," the actor wrote while sharing the video. "This band does not have any modern equipment. And what a tune they have chosen of the military band. Because they know that 'the real power lies in the heart!' Hail to these children."

Many users replied to Kher's tweet to correct his misconception that the children were from India, as did Roy.

"Thanks for sharing the video I shared a few days back. You say that these talented kids are from Bharat, a humble correction, these kids are in fact from Hunza, Pakistan. I am in touch with them and have sent them all the musical instruments they need," he wrote.

Netizens were pretty glad to see Roy put the issue to rest, thanking him for his generous donation to the children. We're also glad to see how polite he was when responding to Kher.

One user banked on the singer's recent generosity and asked him to give away just one more thing — the secret to his youthful looking skin.

Whatever Roy's skincare routine is, it is working wonders. As for the children, we'd love to see a fresh video from them playing their brand new instruments! Glad to know their talent is being celebrated across the border as well.
