In the past few days, posters were put up outside the Chennai residence of Rahman, asking him how he can shake hands with the government which is accused of killing Tamils.

Sources close to Rahman said that the reasons cited for postponing are rumors and it is only due to the Sinhala and Tamil New Year holidays, because of which there are administrative and logistical difficulties, that the show was postponed.Rahman has announced his next Concert in Malaysia on 4 May.
