Popular music composer SS Thaman is set to enthral the viewers with his live performance at Hard Rock Cafe in Hyderabad on Sunday night, 19 October. The concert is intended to raise funds for the victims, who are affected by the Cyclone Hudhud.
When several leading Tollywood stars were announcing hefty donations for the Hudhud relief find, costume designer Neeraja Kona decided to try out something different that would fetch huge amount of money for the victims. That is when she got the idea of organising a charity concert. Besides organising this event, the sister of popular script-writer Kona Venkat will also host it.
This special concert is being held at Hard Rock Cafe, GVK One, road No 1 in Banjara Hills at 8pm on Sunday. A host of Telugu stars like Naga Chaitanya, Nithin, Hansika and a few others will be present at the event. The ticket is priced at ₹ 1,000 and ₹ 2,000 and the interested music lovers and fans of Thaman can book the concert on the website – Indianstage. The money raised through the event will be given to the CM relief fund.
On 15 October, Neeraja Kona took to her Twitter page to inform about the concert to her followers. She tweeted, "THAMAN UNPLUGGED - music for a cause!
