Recently, AR Rahman talked about Oscar cursed and reveal upon composing music for some Bollywood films and told the reason for it in an interview with one of the leading newspaper Bombay Times, “I don’t say no to good movies, but I think there is a gang, which, due to misunderstandings, is spreading some false rumors.
After this Bollywood filmmaker, Shekar Kapur, had taken a dig at Bollywood and reacted on Twitter, “You know what your problem is @arrahman? You went and got #Oscars. An Oscar is the kiss of death in Bollywood. It proves you have more talent than Bollywood can handle.”
For all the people who don’t know, the great musician AR Rahman got two Academy Awards for Slumdog Millionaire – Best Original Song and Best Original Music Score.
Filmmaker Shekar Kapur’s tweet comes after Rahman told at one of the radio station interview Radio Mirchi that he doesn’t say no to good movies. Still, he thinks there is a gang, which, due to misunderstandings, is spreading some false rumors about him.
Stories are coming and only coming after the demise of Sushant Singh; due to his unexpected and mysterious death, people are coming out and getting vocal for themselves. Though, Rahman got to know about his rumors through the last movie of Sushant only.
He shared that it was the time of Dil Bechara music when he gave four songs within two days to Mukesh Chabra, and he (Mukesh) said that when he was calling me for the album, many people tried to resist him for approaching me.
Unlikely others from Bollywood, the team of Kangana Ranaut, who is identified for their blunt mannerism and blasting tweets, also wrote that such kind of effects only arise when an actor or an actress tries to act autonomous and becomes independent. Kangana team reacted after Rahman’s interview stating upon Bollywood gang.
Similarly, musician Resul Pookutty who had won an Oscar for best sound mixing for ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ in the same year for the same movie with Rahman, also repeated similar sentiments and had shared on twitter.“ Dear @shekharkapur ask me about it, I had gone through near breakdown as nobody was giving me work in Hindi films and regional cinema held me tight after I won the Oscar… There were production houses told me at my face, “we don’t need you,” but still, I love my industry, for it…..”
AR Rahman had stated in the interview that there is a gang that prevents him from doing movies. “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,” the renowned musician had shared.
