A.R. Rahman to perform in London on 15th aug

New Delhi: Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman is set to perform at London's O2 arena on August 15, India's Independence Day, after five years.

“Dear Fans and Friends from London, Looking forward to seeing you all @ the O2 arena on the 15th of August,” the composer tweeted.

The official website of O2 arena read: "The double Grammy and double Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner, returns to The O2 after five years, with a one off greatest hits show on Saturday 15 August 2015. He will be joined by very special guests including; Neeti Mohan, Javed Ali, Karthik, Haricharan, Jonita Gandhi and Hriday Gattani."

The music maestro made history when he became the first Indian to win two Oscars in a year, 2009, for Danny Boyle's "Slumdog Millionaire", the rags-to-riches story of a Mumbai slum-dweller. The 'Mozart of Madras' had also bagged two awards at the 52nd Annual Grammy for his song "Jai ho" from the same film.
