A R Rahman's 'Jai Ho' all set to go live
KOZHIKODE: Music lovers from all over the country and abroad have begun queuing up in large numbers to witness music maestro A R Rahman's live show 'Jai Ho', the first since he received the double Oscar, at the Corporation stadium here this evening.

With the organisers Global Kerala Initiative 'Keraleeyam' refusing permission for any live coverage of the event, tickets to the tune of about Rs seven crore had been sold out.

The funds would be utilised for the rehabilitation of HIV-positive children.

Rahman, who will not be performing in India for the next five years owing to pre-occupation, will lead a 98-member troupe today, which include popular playback singers like Hariharan, Sadhana Sargam, K S Chithra, Rashid Ali, Javed Ali, Benny Dayal, Mohammed Aslam and Sayanora.

Rahman performed a full-fledged rehearsal at the venue late last evening, soon after his arrival in the city.

About 30 songs would be sung during the two-and-a-half hours show and most of them would be heard in the stage for the first time, the organisers said.

Over 2,000 police personnel have been deployed to control traffic and maintain law and order.

Meanwhile, mediapersons, who were earlier assured that the 10-minute inaugural ceremony would be open for coverage, had now been told that owing to security reasons video coverage and still photography would not be permitted.
