You may have many such cases where someone just shared a video of a person who needs some help which directly gets viral on the social media platforms and everyone supports them. In this way, the internet helps many people out there who require support either financially or for those who want their talent to be recognized. Recently, such a thing has happened again and it’s winning many hearts out there. A heartwarming video of a man singing ‘Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye’ from the 1990 movie Jurm is going all sorts of viral on social media which is earning all the attention and praises it deserves, which also includes Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and Kunal Kapoor.
