A new multi-lingual song by Bollywood music composers Meet Brothers, extolling India’s dazzling array of fauna, is set to premiere on Animal Planet’s new show that gives an overview of the country’s wildlife.

The three-minute song in Tamil, Bangla and Hindi with passionate lyrics, vibrant choreography and performances introduces the show ‘Yeh Mera India’, which debuts on the channel from August 15 this year.

Choreographed by Feroz Khan, the anthem sung by Meet Brothers, Shibani Kashyap and Neha Bhasin is directed by Vishal Punjabi.

Commemorating the 69th year of India’s Independence, the month-long show seeks to take viewers on an exotic journey, to explore some rarely seen and endangered wildlife of the country.

“It’s a musical tribute to the independence of animals,” Manmeet Singh of Meet Brothers’ said.

The Party in the Jungle theme for the anthem described as both sensational and celebratory.

“The soundtrack is designed to match the progressive state of mind of today’s youth,” said fellow Meet Brother composer, Harmeet Singh.

The show provides insights into how some of the endangered animals like the elephant, the guar (Indian bison), the Nilgiri Tahr, the sambhar (the largest of Indian deer), abound in the lush forests are vulnerable owing to urban development, habitat destruction and poaching.

Works of renowned conservationists and experts like Valmik Thapar, Ullas Karanth, Jeremy Wade, Steve Backshall, and Niall McCann, who have been exploring and supporting the conservation of wildlife in the country will be projected in the show.
