Rain and bad management spoil the Rahman magic at IIFA Rocks

Oscar and Grammy victor A.R. Rahman is a gift to India and the world, said Bollywood actor Dia Mirza, who is here to attend the 18th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards. "Rahman's performance was every bit worth it".

Bollywood actress Dia Mirza, who walked as the showstoppers for a fashion show held at New York's Times Square as a part of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), shared that she never imagined that will be doing a fashion show in the middle of Times Square. I loved performing, even though it was raining. But, this year the rain spoiled all the plans.

"Thank you for getting wet and sitting for this", said Rahman in the middle of his performance.

Rahman brought the audience to its feet with his Tamil hits "Urvasi urvasi" and "Humma humma", a scene so different from his recent United Kingdom concert for which he was trolled on the social media by concert goers who felt there were too many Tamil songs. Rahman's show started off with the popular song from Dil Se and he was further joined by few of the music industry's biggest names including Benny Dayal, Jonita Gandhi, Neeti Mohan, Javed Ali and others on the show.
