IIFA 2017 Rocks Gala Witnesses Rain; But The Show Went On

Rahman is now in NY for the 18th edition of the IIFA Weekend and Awards and is yet to directly comment on the incident. "It's too late right", said Rahman but he played Humma Humma nevertheless, reports IANS.

The show started with the popular track from Dil Se and the Oscar winning musician was later joined by his equally talented team comprising singers like Jonita Gandhi, Neeti Mohan, Javed Ali, Benny Dayal and Haricharan.

Like in London, Rahman's set in NY also comprised some Tamil songs.

Talking to ANI, the Oscar-winning composer said he tries to give his best in a performance. "Rahman's performance was every bit worth it".

The audience in NY accepted the Tamil songs as much as they grooved to Rahman's Hindi songs. "We had no problems that he sang in Tamil because we believe one should preserve their culture", New York-based Rajan Panda told IANS after the concert. Its music, it's universal.

Meanwhile, Rahman's London concert audience was apparently made up of folks who claim Rahman should remember he "made his name in Bollywood" (this is untrue).

Bollywood actress Dia Mirza, who walked as the showstoppers for a fashion show held at New York's Times Square as a part of International Indian Film Academy (IIFA), shared that she never imagined that will be doing a fashion show in the middle of Times Square.
