The untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput has sparked a debate over nepotism and favouritism in the showbiz industry. Netizens, along with some celebrities, have come forward to speak about the issue and slammed the privileged club of the Bollywood. Now, music composer AR Rahman who composed the music for Sushant Singh Rajput’s swan song Dil Bechara also spoke about his ‘unfair treatment’ in the industry.
The Oscar-winning music composer recently disclosed a revelation that came as a shock to his fans in an interview. Speaking about the reason behind composing “few music” in Bollywood movies
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 (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.”
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.”
AR Rahman composed nine songs of Dil Bechara which was premiered on July 24 on Disney Plus Hotstar as a tribute to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput. He is also famous for his stunning soundtracks for critically acclaimed films such as Guru, Rockstar, Dil Se, Swades, Lagaan, and Raanjhana.
