Indian music composer and Oscar award winner AR Rahman reveals a bitter truth of our so called Bollywood music industry. Rahman blames that there is whole gang in Bollywood who is working against him.
In an interview to Radio Mirchi, AR Rahman reveals, “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 (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, without them knowing that they are doing harm.”
