Rahmans Commonwealth Games theme song video live performance


Oscar winning composer A.R. Rahman launched “Oh yaaro, yeh India bula liya”(Friends, we have called you to India), the theme song for the Commonwealth Games at Gurgaon on Saturday.The song has been titled ‘Swagatham‘

I feel honoured to have got the opportunity to compose the theme song for the mega-event. It was not an easy task. I had started composing it six months ago and finished just last night,” Rahman said.

He sang the song for around five minutes in front of a gathering which included the Delhi CM, Ms Sheila Dikshit, and the CWG organising committee chairman, Mr Suresh Kalmadi.

  1. 1:36 he takes mike before he completes.. but the song is still clear.. it clearly shows he was just syncing his lips with what was played back

  2. exactly its all same old tunes of his hindi movies , nothin great, perhaps our expectation has increased!!!

    Expected something like waka waka of shakira,but disappointed,

    Pl dont just follow like herds, Appreciate only good music,this is not the sort of music we are looking!!
