Subhash Ghai recently got very overwhelmed with emotions at the music launch of his soon to be released musical extravaganza YUVVRAAJ. While the occasion was very important to him, there was one special guest who made it all the more extraordinary for him and that was Karima Begum, mother of musical maestro A R Rahman.
It was for the first time that Karima Begum made her public appearance. She flew all the way from her home town Chennai to Mumbai just to inaugurate the Music of YUVVRAAJ where she presented the first CD to Mr. Ghai.
Mr. Ghai still gets emotional reminiscing the day, ''After the music inauguration of YUVVRAAJ I went to my room and while contemplating about the entire day I remembered my own late mother who made me what I am today... she taught me the value of relationships, love, she brought music to my life and of course the significance of blessings from near and dear ones. I was very close to my mother and even though she is not around but I can still feel her presence even today. When I first met Karimaji, I found the same love, simplicity and power in her; she brought the same smile on my face as my mom did. YUVVRAAJ's music is scorching heights on the music charts all over the world and it has to be a blessing up from above''.
YUVVRAAJ produced by Mukta Arts Limited, will release on 21st November, 2008
