Rahman awarded for his 25 years of musical contribution at IIFA

Talking to ANI, Dia, who won Miss Asia Pacific 2000, said that AR Rahman, who completed his 25 years in the music industry, is a gift to India and the world.

A few days ago, after some fans walked out of Rahman's concert at London's Wembley Stadium for the lack of Hindi songs, the performance of Rahman at the MetLife Stadium comes in.

There was a demand for an encore even after he regaled the crowd for nearly two hours.


A R Rahman's NY concert (IIFA Rocks) was in complete contrast to his London gig, where "fans" of the Oscar-winning composer reportedly walked out of the Wembley Stadium, complaining that his set was dominated by Tamil numbers. Once more. I can't hear you.

The actress said she is in India instead of NY attending the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards as she wants to have a birthday party with her mother and brother. Rahman, 50, took over the stage again later and mesmerised the audience with his hit numbers like "Nadaan Parindey", which he sang with Mohit Chauhan, "Dil Hai Chota Sa", "Agar Tum Saath Ho", "Bin Tere Kya Jeena" with Neeti and teamed up with Hariharan on stage to create magic with "Mere Paas Hai Tu".

"I thank him for being an inspiration". I loved performing, even though it was raining. Make some noise for Rahman sir. "I am honoured to be here", Jonita said.Rahman, who recently composed the music for SachinTendulkar's biopic, asked the crowd, do you like cricket, doyou like Sachin?, before singing the title track of the filmas the master blaster's photograph was displayed on the screen.
