We have announced that Indian film superstar Hrithik Roshan (Dhoom 2, Bang Bang, Krrish) and music maestro A. R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire) are the first two Indian personalities confirmed to take over radio airwaves this September as they join Radio Everyone, the lynchpin of a plan to reach 7 billion people in 7 days, to take the message of The Global Goals far and wide. Radio Everyone is a part of Project Everyone, the brainchild of renowned filmmaker Richard Curtis. Project Everyone is also supported by Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan.
In September 2015, at the United Nations, New York, 193 world leaders will adopt a series of ambitious goals to end extreme poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change for everyone by 2030. Using radio, the world’s most accessible medium, Radio Everyone will shine a spotlight on the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
Hrithik Roshan will take on the role of one of Radio Everyone’s Global Communicators and A. R. Rahman joins other Global Musicians for Radio Everyone including Cody Simpson, D’Banj, Ice Prince and 2Face Idibia.
The first Indian radio partner to be announced as a supporter of Radio Everyone is Reliance Group’s 92.7 BIG FM.
Reliance Group and NGO Akshaya Patra are part of the Founding Team of Project Everyone.
Richard Curtis and Radio Everyone are partnering with the Global Citizen Festival to “Tell Everyone” about the new to-do list for the planet: The Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
