Published: 01st October 2019

We had earlier reported that Grammy and Oscar-winning musician AR Rahman's 99 Songs will have its world premiere at the Busan International Film Festival.  On the heels of this news comes another exciting announcement: The composer will be treating the festival’s audience to a glimpse of his musical love story by performing live at the festival.

Rahman will take the stage ahead of the red carpet screening of 99 Songs on the same day. Also present will be the film's lead actor, debutant Ehan Bhat, and director Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy.

Speaking on the development, Rahman said, “I am delighted to be a part of this amazing gathering of film enthusiasts and have the screening of our labour of love at BIFF. The film’s music is very special and so integral to its story that I feel compelled to introduce it to audiences at this very special event before the screening. I’m looking forward to bringing them this celebration of cinema and music and can’t wait for the reactions.”

99 Songs is said to be a 'passionate love story with music as its soul'. The film is co-produced by Rahman’s production company YM Movies and Ideal Entertainment.
