Rahman states, "For me it is a historic event because of two things on the positive side. Firstly Australia has been very kind to me, my song Jai Ho became number one here (Australia) also I have had a great audience in Melbourne and Sydney last year. Now this concert has to redefine the friendship again so I haven't given any interviews about the racial killing as everything has been painted in the same brush."
