A R Rahman: “I Am Honored To Be Invited On

The oscar winning music composer A R Rahman recently attended the singing reality show 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs Season 6' as a celebrity guest. The music maestro was appeared on the show with veteran actress Sridevi to promote the highly anticipated film ‘MOM’ in which Sridevi plays the lead role.

An 11-year-old Li’l Champ Shreyan Bhattacharya from Kolkata had sung A R Rahman’s popular number ‘Maa Tujhe Salaam’. While hearing him sing his song, the legendary composer became nostalgic and remembered the recording of the song. He said, “Your singing took me back to 1997 when I had sung this composition. There is something going on with this generation, they sing like ustaads at such a young age."

“I’m honored to be here on the sets of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs and furthermore honored that the current generation is still singing my songs. I thoroughly enjoyed all the performances and must say that these kids are phenomenally talented and have a long way to go,” he added.

A R Rahman also gave a lifetime opportunity to 12-year old Orissa boy Satyajeet Jena. Impressed by his singing and his talent to compose music, when AR Rahman was informed that this li'l champ is a music composer too, he requested Satyajeet to perform, as he wanted to listen to his composition. Enthralled by his talent, the legendary composer immediately offered him a week-long internship at his studio.
