Two time Oscar winner AR Rahman planned to perform in front of the Taj Mahal but he has been denied permission by ASI.
A R Rahman wanted to perform at the Taj Mahal during the audio launch of Gautham Menon’s Hindi film ‘Ek Deewana Tha’, (Hindi version of Vinnaithandi Varuvaya).
The Archeological Survey of India that takes care of historic monuments in the country has denied permission to ARR as it fears that there might be some damage to the Taj Mahal which is the symbol of love.
Now arrangements have been made for A.R Rahman to perform during the audio launch event on December 21 at a popular star hotel in Agra from where one can get good view of the Taj.
AR Rahman has composed fresh tunes for Ek Deewana Tha and has also retained some tunes from the original version.
