New Delhi: It was a musical night out for the family of Congress president Sonia Gandhi here on Saturday: Ms. Gandhi and her kin enjoyed a performance by famous Pakistani sufi singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan.
Ms. Gandhi's mother Paola Maino, son Rahul, daughter Priyanka and son-in-law Robert Vadra, were among the VVIPs who attended the concert at Siri Fort Auditorium.
Khan began the concert with his first Bollywood hit number `Lagi Tum Se Man Ki Lagan' from the film `Paap.' The Pakistani vocalist, who is the nephew of the late legendary singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, is known for songs in the sufi genre.
