Stave Waugh made a small mention of CHARINDAA in an interview with Margret Thorsby on ABC (look for the interview on Thursday 25 October) while talking about his new book (Out of My Comfort Zone). It is quite a long interview and you have to work your way to the 48 min mark to hear the mention of CHARINDAA. But it is there for sure! Steve Waugh also made mention of CHARINDAA on Jon Faine's program on 774 ABC Melbourne on the same day. The link to the Margret Thorby interview is:

Comment from Baz Luhrmann

"I had come to the music of AR Rahman through the emotional and haunting score of 'Bombay' and the wit and celebration of 'Lagaan'. But the more of AR's music I encountered the more I was to be amazed at the sheer diversity of styles: from swinging brass bands to triumphant anthems; from joyous pop to West-End musicals ('Bombay Dreams'). Whatever the style, AR Rahman's music always possesses a profound sense of humanity and spirit, qualities that inspire me the most." Baz Luhrmann, noted Film Director, Sydney (Australia), 14-July-2005.

SigaramTV is the premier Tamil television station, that focuses on broadcasting high-impact, memorable programmes particularly covering the news (local & worldwide), music, films, light entertainment and current affairs to the Tamil Community living in Australia and New Zealand.

Dino, the CEO of SigaramTV adds, “We are extremely glad with this association with CHARINDAA and A.R. Rahman. The A.R. Rahman brand is extremely pure, very exciting, highly intellectual and extremely innovative. These are values that SigaramTV associates itself with. In addition, CHARINDAA are promoting this tour as no Indian arts tour has been promoted before. This is going to be the biggest Bollywood show Australia has ever seen.
