AR Rahman was recently in Canada in connection with his collaboration with a Toronto based company called Ideal Entertainment who is also producing his debut directorial Le Musk. Apparently, Canada Mayor had invited Rahman to set up base in his country and the Oscar winner has politely refused the same.
In his Facebook page, Rahman states, “Thank you for your kind invitation to set up a base in Canada, Mr Mayor. I’m indeed very touched and moved by your gesture. I’m well settled and happy in Tamil Nadu, India with my family, friends and the people there. Do visit our KM Music Conservatory when you come to India the next time. I will also look into interesting artistic collaborations between Canada and India”.
