Dreams do come true, and we have proof. Our very own Karthik of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Seniors Season 2, stole music maestro AR Rahman’s heart by singing his composition Khwaja Mere Khwaja from Jodhaa Akbar during the Bhakti Paatu round. The contestant, who is everyone’s hot favourite sang the song with utmost devotion. His innocence and sincerity not only impressed the Oscar Award Winning musician but left him choked.
The performance touched the legendary composer, and he took to Twitter share his reaction.
Here’s what he wrote:
Got me choked Kartik 😭க்வாஜா எந்தன் க்வாஜா என்று பாடி நம் உயிருக்குள் இறங்கி, அரங்கத்தை கண்ணீரால் நிரப்பிய கார்த்திக்கின் performance! ச ரி க ம ப சீனியர்ஸ் II வரும் சனி மற்றும் ஞாயிறு இரவு 6.30 மணிக்கு Watch All the Episodes on https://t.co/v8HiW4q3pg https://t.co/IL3dXKL4g7

For the unversed, the original song was sung by AR Rahman himself.
Karthik got an opportunity to meet the Mozart of Madras recently. Check out the pics here:
Karthik has delivered spellbinding performances so far, and he leaves us asking for more every time he hits the stage. On that specific day, when he sang Khawaja, people were moved to tears both on and off the screen. Rahman, who was moved by Karthik’s performance, decided to meet him and appreciate the young man for his singing. Watch the video embedded above to watch Karthik’s performance that grabbed AR Rahman’s attention.
