Seems like music maestro A R Rahman has got an admirer in Ivanka Trump. It is believed that the daughter of the US President Donald J. Trump will be attending AR Rahman’s ENCORE, the concert that is set to commence on November 26 in Hyderabad. It will act as an official opening night of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit that will be held between November 28 and November 30 at Hyderabad International Convention Centre according to Hindustan Times.
“Yes, Ivanka Trump has been approached and she has shown interest. If things fall in place, then she is expected to attend the concert at Hyderabad,” said a source close to the event organiser.
In view of this development, the promoters of the show are taking every measure possible to ensure that the security for the event is not compromised.
Rahman is performing in India after a hiatus of almost 5 years. The concert celebrates his 25-year-long journey in the music industry that began with Mani Ratnam’s Roja (1992). The four city tour that begins with Hyderabad, will progress to cities including Ahmedabad, Mumbai and New Delhi.
Ivanka Trump is said to be intrigued by Indian culture and performing arts and has plans to explore India during her visit. She will be visiting Charminar, Laad Bazaar and Chowmahalla Palace. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will host a dinner for Ivanka at Falaknuma Palace on November 28, while the Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will host a dinner for the GES delegates at Golconda Fort on November 29.
