An Upset Mithoon Refused To Take To The Stage With AR Rahman, Here Is What Happened Next...
Yesterday, Mumbai witnessed a host of musical acts like AR Rahman, Jonita Gandhi, Salim Sulaiman, Mithoon and others, who performed at the NCSI Grounds. But Tum Hi Ho composer Mithoon had walked away from the performance, with just minutes to spare before the show began. This is what went down.

Since there were a host of performers for the concert, each band was allotted a time for the sound check. But due to technical reasons, the sound check of a few artistes went past schedule and by the time it was Mithoon's turn it was 7 pm.  By now the audiences had already started pouring in.

The organisers wanted the concert to start as soon as possible but Mithoon was yet to do his sound-check. The organisers requested him to take on the stage but Mithoon thought it was not a good idea to go on stage unprepared and dejectedly pulled out at the last minute.

But a few of his fans found out and decided to take action.

A mad scramble began to find Mithoon at the venue and the composer soon found the group gathered outside his vanity van, pleading with him to perform.

An onlooker told  "The fans literally told him that they had come to the concert to watch Mithoon perform live and would be very disappointed if they don't see him."

This  moved the composer and he decided to adhere to his fans' requests. Though Mithoon could not  perform  the set he had planned for the concert, he sang a few of his hits including Tum Hi Ho (Aashiqui 2) and Darkhaast with Arjun Kanungo.

AR Rahman performed with the nine famous YouTube artists, while Salim Sulaiman collaborated with Siddharth Basrur -- the famous indie singer.

All's well that ends well and this concert certainly did!
