NTR Memorial Trust is going to up the ante this year with the spectacular 3D music show, ‘Rahamania’, by A.R. Rahman and his 96-member troupe on 1.12.12.
While Rahman is busy with his Hollywood assignment, he has managed to spare some time for the event. The proceeds from the show will go towards the studies of poor students in NTR Model School and other charity activities.
The organisers wanted to hold the show on 12.12.12, but the Oscar-winning composer could only spare time on December 1. “We are negotiating with Rahman but nothing is finalised yet,” says leading producer Maganti Gopinath, one of the organisers.
Gopinath says that the CEO of the NTR Memorial Trust, Venkat, was the brain behind this “first-of-its-kind” event adding that Rahman’s team, meanwhile, has already checked out the arrangements for the show in the city.
“We have seen Rahman’s 3D shows in the US and Australia, but this would be his first 3D show in India. The 3D impact will be created with lighting effects by special generators and more than 50,000 viewers with special glasses will be watching images, robots and objects flying around them besides enjoying Bollywood and Tollywood chartbusters,” says ace director Teja, who will be at the helm for the show.
The NTR trust is planning to raise Rs 10 crore through the four-hour programme that will also be telecast live on Telugu, Tamil and Hindi channels.
