After marking his 25th year in the music industry with the August release, One Heart: The AR Rahman Concert Film — a compilation of his 14-city US tour — the musician is set to connect with his fans in India with a four-city show. The Academy Award-winner will take AR Rahman ‘Encore – The Concert’, to Hyderabad (November 26), Ahmedabad (December 3), Mumbai (December 17) and Delhi (December 23), marking his first solo gig in the country in five years.
Reflecting on his journey in the industry, Rahman tells mid-day, “Music serves as a spiritual bond between the audience and myself. I am excited about performing at home after such a long gap. These 25 years have been incredible. The almighty has been kind in giving me happiness that has multiplied year-after-year. From a husband and father, to a composer and mentor, I have embraced different roles, but music has been a constant.”
