Indian Idol 12 has far seen various celebrities visit the sets and groove to the music of the top 13 contestants. But everything bows down when the alleged ‘God of Music’, none other than A.R. Rahman makes a special appearance on Indian Idol 12.
Vaishnav Girish delivered an outstanding performance as he sang the song Nahi Saamne and Dard E Dil as a tribute to Subhash Ghai. Immediately post his performance, there was a surprise element set in store for everyone and surely, the judges were more than happy to welcome it.
A.R. Rahman graced and made a special appearance to wish Subhash Ghai on his tribute episode on Indian Idol 12. Recollecting beautiful memories of working with Ghai, A.R. Rahman said, “I have worked on some of the most important song tracks of my life, with him and Taal being one of them, it opened up a whole set of audiences for me. The enthusiasm that Mr. Ghai had while making Taal was infectious. It was tough love, we had our set of arguments, our share of fun but ultimately a beautiful soundtrack came into being. He made me learn a bit of Hindi, and I went on to learn Urdu from there ahead. I want to wish Mr. Ghai a very happy birthday, God bless you!”
An emotional Subhash Ghai replied back saying, “Getting a birthday wish from A.R. Rahman in itself is such a wonderful moment. It has always been fun working with him, there is no need for me to elaborate more on it. I thank everyone for their lovely wishes.”
