Himesh Reshammiya has unexpected competition from really stiff quarters. A R Rahman who's currently in Delhi to release the music video of his anti-poverty song Pray for
me, brother will be performing live in Mumbai for New Year's Eve.
Says the shy composer, "The anti-poverty song is produced by Bala who earlier did my Vande mataram. We'll be introducing the number in Mumbai at a live performance
for New Year's eve."
The number is very special for Rahman not only because of its social message. "But also because it's my first song in English. You can call it my gift to myself on my 40th
birthday," Rahman smiles.
Interestingly Reshammiya who claims to be a huge Rahman fan, has his first Mumbai concerts lined up for the same evening.
Ask Rahman about Reshammiya and you get a prompt reply, "He fills a lacuna in Hindi film music, just like Nadeem (of Nadeem Shravan) earlier on. He's trying to mix a lot
of genres. People like his music. It's good. There're audiences for large genres of films. And he's doing a good job."
Reshammiya has gone on-record to say Rahman is the only composer he would sing for if asked to.
Let's see who commands more ear-drums and eye-balls on New Year's eve.
