A R Rahman stuns Kerala!

May 04, 2009 13:36 IST

Kerala had a big reason to celebrate on Sunday when A R Rahman chose the state to kick off his first Live in Concert, Jai Ho.

After a reception befitting an Oscar award winner by the state government, Rahman -- dressed in blue jeans and a jacket -- sent the crowd in raptures at the Corporation stadium in Kozikhode.

Joining Rahman on stage were Malayali singer Sayanora, Hariharan, Sadhana Sargam, Chithra, Rashid Ali, Javed Ali, Mohammed Aslam and Raja Hassan.

The show started at 8 pm and featured a lot of dance performances as well.
