United Arab Emirates Prime Minister Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has been sent an invitation to honour the music launch as the chief guest. Hassan, who will star in Indian 2, the sequel to Shankar’s 1996 blockbuster Indian, is likely to grace the event. The budget of this star-studded audio launch itself is believed to be not less than Rs 15 crore, as reported by Hindustan Times. The same report states that almost Rs 2 crore has been spent to set up giant LED screens at some of the famous shopping malls in Dubai. It will be a live telecast of the audio launch and around 1.5 lakh people will get the chance to witness the event.
