AR RahmanMusic wizard AR Rahman's sister Reihana has rendered one of the songs for Rajnikanth's blockbuster hit, SIVAJI : THE BOSS. The song in question is 'Balleilakka', where she has sung (for the first time) under her illustrious brother's baton.

However, not many will know that Rahman's elder sister is an accomplished singer and it was her earnest desire to sing for him. But Rahman wanted her to hone her skills further and it was only after a long 17 year wait that he made Reihana debut, and that too after taking due permission from the makers!

While on 'Balleilakka' (also featuring S P Balasubrahmanyam and Benny), the name has been derived from the Russian word 'Balalaika', which is a guitar like musical instrument.
