Ek Deewana Tha A.R.Rahman’s Musical Album Release will be done at Taj Mahal on 21 December, 2011. Ek Deewana Tha – A Perfect Romance Music will be available Only On Sony Music. Ek Deewana Tha is a upcoming movie starring Prateik Babbar, newcomer Amy Jackson; has musical duo A R Rahman and Javed Akthar teaming up for music and lyrics.
With this launch AR Rahman is set to cement its association with Bollywood again. Agra’s Taj Mahal (white marble mausoleum) has always been considered the ultimate symbol of love. It is reported that since Ek Deewana Tha is a love story, Rahman was keen to release its music at the most iconic romantic place. It was A R Rahman who suggested that the film’s score be launched at the Taj.
Ek Deewana Tha is a remake of Ye Maaya Chesave, a Telugu 2010 hit which was also directed by Gautham Menon. It is reported that A R Rahman will also be giving a short performance if the Government permits. It may be noted that government authorities are very strict about allowing public functions around one of the Seven Wonders of the World. While it is not certain if Rahman can perform a few songs at the Taj – in the event authorities deny permission – the performance may be held at another venue in Taj City Agra, may be a star hotel.
If successful, this will be the first time that a Bollywood film’s music is released at the Taj Mahal – national monument. It was tipped that Prateik Babbar and Amy Jackson (who are an item these days) will also attend the event at the Taj. Ek Deewana Tha is directed by Gautham Menon and will release in February.
