ACTC Events and Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman teamed up for the Chennai concert, ‘Marakuma Nenjam’. The concert, which was billed as India’s biggest event, was held at Adityaram Palace in Chennai’s Panaiyur on September 10. Overcrowding and excessive traffic caused the concert to become a nightmare for many. Tambaram Police is currently investigating the same issue.
AR Rahman apologized, in a recent interview with the national media, for the mishap. Furthermore, he stated that he is deeply disturbed and will take full responsibility.
Tambaram Police are now investigating reports of overcrowding and chaotic traffic. For a few hours, people were stuck in traffic on the road leading up to the venue. Even the convoy of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin was caught in traffic. The convoy had to use the wrong lane to reach Chennai. According to reports, the police officers have blamed ACTC Events for their inadequate crowd control.
The enquiry will assist in determining if the organizers oversold tickets and if they followed the guidelines properly in procuring licenses. It appears that a notice has been sent to the organizers to provide an explanation. The Permission was obtained by conveying only 25,000 people would attend the event. But 45,000 to 50,000 people came yesterday for concert.Almost 15,000 tickets were oversold.
