AR Rahman to perform live for ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’
‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’, the debut film of Raj Kapoor’s grandson Armaan Jain has been creating good buzz after the release of its trailer and music. Now Armaan will be even happier because the film is set to get even more publicity thanks to none other than music maestro AR Rahman. Rahman is the music composer for the film and now he has decided to perform the film’s songs in a concert. The concert is scheduled to take place in Mumbai on 12th of June. The producers of the film has said, “Having composed all the songs, the makers of the movie revealed that Rahman has taken his unique music-making-process to a new level and has created something radically different from his previous compositions." A concert by AR Rahman is always big news and is almost sure to be sold out. If the ‘Mozart of Madras’ performs an exclusive concert the film will receive a huge promotional boost and will get people talking. Rahman is known for his great live concerts not just in India but all over the world. He has performed with international stars such as Mick Jagger (lead singer of The Rolling Stones) and Michael Bolton. He has even performed at the White House in the presence of The US President and the Indian PM. The makers of ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ now have every reason to be happy.
The soundtrack of ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ feature songs that cover various moods and different genres. All songs have been penned by lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya. The first single released from the album on 13th May was the electronic dance song ‘Khalifa’, sung by Rahman himself. The song has been positively received by the critics as well as the listeners. The entire song was written and composed in one night during the jam sessions of the musical team. According to the producers, "Khalifa was composed during the first recording session that we had with Rahman Sir. The track just came together with a life of its own and it sets the tone of the album." So far two more songs have been released, ‘Maaloom’ (singer Jonita Gandhi) and ‘Allahda’ (singer Shiraz Uppal).
‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ is a romantic, comedy film based around today’s youth. Apart from Armaan, the film also stars Deeksha Seth who is making her Bollywood debut. The film is set to release on 4th July, 2014.
