Ramzan: AR Rahman breaks his fast with a sumptuous meal at Cannes 2019
After the MET Gala 2019, another international extravaganza, the Cannes Film Festival 2019 kickstarts and is said to conclude on May 25, 2019. While enough has been written on who will be walking the Cannes red carpet this year, we have another tale to tell you. Singer and composer AR Rahman, who happens to be a proud Muslim, is fasting for Ramzan. He is also currently in France with an aim to be part of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival 2019.
The singer is in the French Riviera to promote his directorial venture Le Musk, an Indian virtual reality film. Well, the news is that at this year's Cannes, Rahman broke his Ramadan fast and binged on his Iftar meal at around 9 PM there. Not just this, the music composer also shared a happy post on his IG which sees him holding a glass of apple juice in his hand along with a bowl of salad on the table. As we all know, Iftar is an evening meal for Muslims during Ramzan, with which they end their day-long fast at sunset.

In an earlier interview, Rahman had expressed a strong opinion on Islam. Talking about his faith, he said, "It's not about converting to Islam, it's about finding the spot and seeing whether it presses the button in you. The spiritual teachers, the Sufi teachers, taught me and my mom things that are very, very special. There are special things in every faith, and this is the one we chose. And we stand by it."
"Prayer has been extremely beneficial. It has saved me from many falls. In between prayers, I think, 'Oh, I have to pray, so I can't do this mischief'. People from other faiths do the same thing and are peaceful too. For me, this works!" he added.
Reportedly, Deepika Padukone will be seen in Peter Dundas creation for the event on May 16. Sonam K Ahuja, on the other hand, has Ralph and Russo on her mind for this year's Cannes. Last but not least, everyone's favourite, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has picked Ashi Studio for the big day. Ashi Studio was Deepika's designer last year.
