The Mozart Of Madras would be performing live for his fans for the first time in Mumbai since his Rockstar rock concert in 2011
Music maestro AR Rahman is all set to mesmerise with yet another path breaking and mellifluous film album which is directed by Arif Ali, produced by Eros International and Illuminati Films. This film marks the entry of Raj Kapoor’s grandson Armaan Jain along with Southern beauty Deeksha Seth.
However, there is a fantastic news for all Rahman and music aficionados. The ace musician is going to have a live performance for all music lovers very soon, in Mumbai. The special Lekar Hum Deewana Dil unplugged evening will also be a tad nostalgic and bring back happy memories for Rahman and his crew as the city of Mumbai had seen the Oscar winner last perform in 2011. And Circa 2014 will see AR Rahman headlining a special exclusive concert for Raj Kapoor’s younger grandson Armaan for his debut film Lekar Hum Deewana Dil.
As one would expect from A R Rahman’s compositions, the music of the movie is brilliant. Having composed all the songs, the makers of the movie reveal that Rahman has taken his unique music making process to a new level and has created something radically different from his previous compositions. Armaan and Deeksha were longing to have an AR Rahman live performance and it seems their prayers have been finally answered.
In fact after a long hiatus we have a groovy party number from Rahman in the form of Khalifa that has already got the country buzzing to its transcendent beats. The song will take centre stage that evening and we hear from the makers that it was composed in one night, and was a result of the overnight jam session. The number has become a phenomenon of sorts. Not only is the occasion a sweet twist of destiny with Rahman’s both Mumbai Bollywood concerts involving the Kapoor cousins but interestingly, Armaan is also the youngest actor in Bollywood for whom AR Rahman has lent his voice to in his music career.
