A Paa music event planned for Children’s Day in Mumbai with Vidya Balan, Abhishek Bachchan, director Balki and composer Ilaiyaraaja, has been cancelled, thanks to the work-obsessed composer who says he cannot tear himself away from his current work in Chennai to attend the function
Confirming this development Balki says, “We had planned a formal music launch on Children’s Day in Mumbai. But Raja Sir is busy doing the background score for Paa. In fact I’m with him right now. He says there’s no way he would break his creative process to attend the function. We all respect his wishes. We’ve cancelled the formal music release.”
Now the music soundtrack of Paa simply hits outlets from tomorrow without a formal release.
For Children’s Day Balki will release a number of messages from the Big B in the voice of the child Auro for kids all over the world.
Interestingly Mr. Bachchan won’t appear in person for any of the promotional activities of Paa.
Informs Balki, “We’ll only be hearing him talk about the film in the voice of Auro in all the campaigns. He won’t be seen in person anywhere.”
