The matter was confirmed by Tanvir Ahmed Titu, head of the media department of the BCB to the media. He said, 'Mujib borsho ceremony was postponed due to corona. We are going to organise that event again. All preparations have been made on our behalf. We will be able to officially announce the matter only after the completion of some official process and AR Rahman will perform in the concert.

According to the head of the media department of the BCB Tanvir Ahmed Titu, the event was initially planned to be held on March 17. Now it has been taken in the last week of March which is March 29. 

It is learnt that the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has already asked the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to attend the programme. Apart from AR Rahman the progarmme will also feature some of the top music artist of Bangladesh, who will also perform in the concert.
