AR Rahman encapsulated his thoughts on the press conference with his pithy quote, “I am thankful to Mathrubhumi for organising my show, and feels great to perform in UAE after 7 years”.

Addressing the media along with the maestro, Mathrubhumi director marketing & electronic media Shreyamskumar said, “It is with a deep sense of delight and pride, that the house of Mathrubhumi is hosting the musical genius of AR Rahman in Dubai which will be a new precedent of entertainment and connect with our audience.”

Recounting the long relationship with the musical genius, he mentioned how Rahman graciously consented to shift the venue of the Keraleeyam-Jai Ho musical event for HIV-afflicted from the prior decided venue of Thiruvananthapuram to Kozhikode at Mathrubhumi’s request. “He was so much at home in our city of music-lovers and became one of our families. We also experienced the wonder that the man is and continues to be,” said Kumar.
