Rahman’s mega show in KeralaMarch 30th, 2009 - 3:17 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
After having won the Oscars, music maestro would be first time performing live music concert titled “Jai Ho’ at Corporation Stadium in Kozhikode, Kerala on May 3 to express solidarity with the HIV positive orphan kids. Apart from Rahman, over 50 well-known musicians will be participating in this show being organized by the NGO Global Kerala Initiative. A.R. Rahman said he had been wanting to perform in Kerala for the last 15 years. Though he had cancelled at least seven shows this year itself as he would be in US for at least six months, he wanted the Kerala show to be held as it was ‘irresistible’. Malayalam singers are gifted, dedicated and their foundation very strong, he said to a news agency.
The Chennai-based star composer also said he would team up with Oscar winning sound engineer Resul Pookutty to compose music for Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision’s Bollywood multistarrer Blue, starring Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Lara Dutta, Zayed Khan and Katrina Kaif. Blue is directed by Anthony D’Souza.
