A gang is spreading false rumours about me in Bollywood, says AR Rahman
Mumbai : Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman is speaking about the rumours spreading about him in the Hindi film industry and which is stopping him from getting work.
In an interview on a Radio show, Rahman was asked why he does comparatively fewer Hindi films, as opposed to his frequent output in Tamil cinema. To which he replied, “I don’t say no to good movies, but I think there is a gang, which, due to misunderstandings, is spreading some false rumours, which is hampering my work.”
Talking about a recent incident, the music composer said, “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 and they told me stories after stories. And I understand why I am doing less work in Hindi 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.”
Further adding he said, “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 is known for composing soundtracks for films such as Dil Se, Guru, Rockstar, and winning two Academy Awards for his work on Slumdog Millionaire.
