A concert that musician A R Rahman played in London last week had an unexpected epilogue on social media, with several audience members criticizing Rahman for playing a number of Tamil songs as part of his set. Initially what started as some of the audience feeling duped by the organisers, as if they were promised the performances in Hindi and Urdu and how they felt let down by Rahman.but in the end it turned out to project the language divide. "Chase the American dream, your kids can (speak) Spanish; Live in the United Kingdom that once colonised India - but cry foul when you hear Tamil songs", wrote Sripada, who has sung "Tere Bina" from "Guru" in which Rahman gave the music. Many took to Twitter to express their angst, displeasure over Rahman's concert. "Not expected from a legend", he wrote. The concert was held on 8th July at SSE Arena, Wembley in London.
