When Rahman went down memory lane

It was a nostalgic journey for A R Rahman when he was felicitated at the Sixth Annual Global Indian Music Awards (GIMA) in Mumbai recently.

Veteran Yash Chopra honoured the Mozart of Madras at the event, in the presence of prominent singers like Alka Yagnik,
Hariharan, Udit Narayan, Naresh Iyer, Mohit Chauhan, Chitra, Sonu Niigaam.

Also, songs from Rahman’s chartbuster movies were played on stage.

Speaking on the occasion, Rahman said he was truly touched. ‘I had a hint about the tribute but I did not realise that it will create such huge nostalgia. My thanks to GIMA.’
