Mumbai: Famous rapper and influential figure in the hip-hop industry, Badshah, is scheduled to visit Tata Memorial Hospital this Wednesday. During his visit, he plans to surprise young patients with a live performance pleasantly. The performance, which will last around 30 minutes, will take place in the hospital’s exclusive auditorium.

More than 300 young patients, aged between 8 and 15, who are currently battling cancer, will have the opportunity to attend this charitable event. The performance will include a unique collaboration between Badshah and a 10-year-old cancer patient named Ayub Siddq Mohd Shah. They will perform a never-before-seen duet on Badshah’s track ‘Heartless’ from his album ‘ONE’.

Aside from the performance, Badshah will also personally engage with all the children residing in the pediatric ward of the hospital. He will also interact with the families of terminally ill patients who are undergoing treatment at the hospital.

Badshah expressed his sentiments, stating, “What is our purpose in this world if we cannot contribute positively to the lives of others? I am fortunate to have a strong support system that reminds me to improve every day. Through challenges and setbacks, I’ve learned that kindness and humility are more valuable than power and possessions.”

Dr C.S. Pramesh, the Director of Tata Memorial Hospital, shared, “Badshah holds a special place in the hearts of our patients, especially the children. The journey of fighting cancer is particularly tough for these young ones, and music provides them with a momentary escape from their difficulties, bringing joy and vitality. I am deeply thankful to Badshah for sparing time to visit the hospital, interact with the children, and perform for them.”

Shalini Jatia, the Officer-In-Charge of Tata Memorial Hospital’s ImPaCCT Foundation, elaborated further, saying, “Badshah’s efforts will not only impact the lives of our young cancer fighters but will also serve as a reminder to everyone that a single act of kindness and positivity can make an enormous difference to those in need.”

Over the years, Tata Memorial Hospital has interacted with various celebrities, including Salman Khan. More recently, Shahrukh Khan fulfilled the wish of a 60-year-old cancer patient from Kolkata by video-calling her.
