The duo will perform together at a concert on 30th March 2019 which will feature the fusion of classical and modern style of Ghazal singing including a few famous ghazals from films.

"This year, all the proceeds will be donated to the Breast Cancer Council," Ms Bhatnagar says.

"We have always donated our proceeds to Cancer Council but this time we chose the Breast Cancer Council, as we know many friends who have been diagnosed and treated for it.

"It is heartening to know how council not only helps sufferers but their families too. So we wanted to raise awareness too," she told SBS Hindi.
