Set against the backdrop of the world’s worst industrial disaster, the Bhopal Gas tragedy, The Railway Men follows a group of railway employees whose unshakeable tenacity compels them to help save countless lives during the city’s darkest hours.

Among the countless admirers of the show there’s one who was especially deeply moved by the poignant narrative of ‘The Railway Men’. Khurrana found himself so affected by the series and the song, in particular, that he was impelled to lend his voice for Nindiya (Reprise), adding another layer of heartfelt intensity to an already powerful tune.
In Ayushmann’s own words, “When I was watching the series, apart from the fact that it was brilliantly made, what stayed with me is how it instilled hope in me. While we all are aware of the tragedy and its aftermath, the indomitable human spirit moved me. Nindiya Re, in the series, encapsulated the emotions through two young children at the railway platform. This is my heartfelt tribute to the bravery, courage and the ability of people to face the darkest of hours and rebuild themselves from scratch. This show and this track ‘Nindiya’ hold a special place in my heart.”
