Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman (my favourite) has revealed that the reason he has been doing less work over the years is that certain people in Bollywood have been continuously spreading rumours about him, denting his chances of getting a good job.
The subject came up when Rahman was asked why he works more frequently in Tamil cinema than in Hindi films, during an interaction on the FM station Radio Mirchi.
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,”
Rahman’s recent score is for “Dil Bechara”, the late Sushant Singh Rajput’s last film that released on OTT this Friday. The film marks the directorial debut of casting director Mukesh Chhabra and has been winning plauses for its beautiful tunes.
Talking about the same, he added:
“When Mukesh Chhabra came to me, I gave him four songs in two days. He told me, ‘Sir, many people said don’t go to him (Rahman). They told me stories after stories’. I heard that, and I realised, yeah okay, now I understand why I get less (Bollywood offers) and why the good movies are not coming to me. I am doing dark movies because there is a whole gang working against me. People are expecting me to do stuff, but there is another gang of people preventing that from happening, without them knowing that they are doing harm,”
“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,” the musician pointed out.
He added that everyone is welcome to work with him. “All of you are welcome to come to me. Make beautiful movies, and you are welcome to come to me,” he said.
Rahman won two Oscars for Danny Boyle’s “Slumdog Millionaire” in 2009. In October last year, he turned producer with the musical film, “99 Songs”.
