Rahman to present Games song on Saturday

After a few changes in the tune and the lyrics, the much awaited and much delayed anthem of the Commonwealth Games is ready for release on Saturday. Music maestro A.R. Rahman has inserted the word ‘India’ a few more times in the lyrics and made the tempo peppier, sources said. The changes were made following suggestions from an Empowered Group of Ministers on Commonwealth Games, which gave the song, "O Yaaro! India bula liyaa" an in-principle thumbs up a few weeks ago.

The Delhi Games Organizing Committee on Thursday said the Oscar winner music director will be performing the song on Saturday. However, the venue has not been finalized. The launch of the song got delayed after the GoM asked Rahman to change it a little bit.
