Music sensation 'Isai Puyal' AR Rahman’s Colombo concert scheduled for April 23 has been postponed indefinitely following protests from anti-Sri Lanka groups and posters being stuck outside his Chennai residence, Indian media reported.

However, the organisers say that the postponing has nothing to do with the posters.
The composer recently performed 3 shows back-to-back in Chennai and for the first time in Madurai and Coimbatore.

The grand show in Colombo was to witness AR Rahman and nineteen of India’s best male and female artists on one stage, for the first time in Sri Lanka.

In the past few days, posters were put up outside the Chennai residence of Rahman, asking him how he can shake hands with the government which is accused of killing Tamils.

When The News Minute contacted the organisers HALS Studios, they said that the reasons cited for postponing are rumors and it is only due to the Sinhala and Tamil New Year holidays, because of which there are administrative and logistical difficulties, that the show was postponed.

Rahman has announced his next Concert in Malaysia on May 4, 2016.

    SL Govt has good relationship with Indian Govt which would help the SL Govt to achieve it's target of 1million jobs. I think, MR and the clan has organized these protests in Chennai to create problems between the 2 countries.

    True, we respect any tamils coming from other countries, not ours.

    Chennaites have forgotten the gesture in donations by Murali and Sanga when the city was flooded.

    A. R.R is one such person who doesn't care about these protesters or any. If he feels what he's gonna do is right ,then he'll prepare to hit his target. The stupidest post which I ever came across, trying to start to promote hate towards ARR , so that people would be like Oh he didn't come cos he's against our country. You can clearly see that the delay is due to holiday time in Sri Lanka, and also they are waiting to get all the other lead singers ready and free. Do promote a good picture please!
