"I wanted to come and perform here in Delhi but somehow things didn't work out, but now with the help of Fever 104 FM I'll get a chance to perform and jive Delhi audience," said AR Rahman at the first anniversary bash of Fever 104 FM.
The concert will take place after 35 days of talent hunt, which will be conducted by Fever 104 FM, starting October 12 to November 17. Of all the entries, 10 singers will be shortlisted for the semi final round. The lucky five, who will clear the semi final round, will be sent to Chennai to meet the maestro who will chose one of them to perform on stage with him.
Currently, Rahman is busy with international assignments. He has composed music for Shekhar Kapur's Elizabeth - The Golden Age, which is releasing Friday. In the film he worked alongside renowned composer Craig Armstrong.
"It has been a nice experience working with Craig and Shekhar," said Rahman who is also doing a project in London but he refused to talk about it.
Rahman, whose songs in Rang De Basanti and Guru still enthrals the music lovers, is looking forward to Ashutosh Gowariker's period drama Jodhaa-Akbar for which he has scored the music.
