AR Rahman Urvasi Urvasi New Version MTV Unplugged
More than two decades after his Urvasi Urvasi song took audiences by storm, A.R. Rahman unveiled its reimagined version on the 7th season of MTV Unplugged on Wednesday.
The Oscar-winning composer had asked his fans to contribute fresh lyrics for the charanam of the song and upon receiving more than a 1,000 comments on his Facebook page, picked four contributions. The new version features Rahman with Suresh Peters (who sang with him in the original hit) and composer Ranjit Barot.
The recorded version of the song was uploaded on MTV India’s Facebook page just over an hour ago. It’s quite a stunning rendition of the classic track from the 1994 Tamil film Kadhalan, with a meticulous arrangement and a set of incredibly talented percussionists.
