Composer AR Rahman says ‘there is a whole gang working against me’
The Dil Bechara music director reveals why he is working on less Bollywood films
Oscar winning composer, AR Rahman has revealed in an interview that there is a sinister reason behind him working on less Bollywood films. He believes there is a gang of people spreading rumours about him.
During a conversation with Radio Mirchi, Rahman said, “I don’t say no to good movies, but I think there is a gang, which, due to misunderstandings, is spreading some false rumours. When Mukesh Chhabra came to me, I gave him four songs in two days. He told me, ‘Sir, how many people said don’t go, don’t go to him (AR Rahman) and they told me stories after stories.’ I heard that, and I realised, yeah okay, now I understand why I am doing less (Bollywood films) and why the good movies are not coming to me. I am doing dark movies, because there is a whole gang working against me, without them knowing that they are doing harm.”
He added, “People are expecting me to do stuff, but there is another gang of people preventing that from happening. It is fine, because I believe in destiny, and I believe that everything comes from God. So, I am taking my movies and doing my other stuff. But all of you are welcome to come to me. Make beautiful movies, and you are welcome to come to me.”
Rahman won two Oscars in 2009 for his music in Slumdog Millionaire. Most recently he produced the music for Dil Bechara, which premiered on Disney Plus Hotstar this weekend.
