A senior AIADMK Minister in Tamil Nadu on Tuesday backed Oscar-winning composer A R Rahman on him being allegedly denied work within the Hindi cinema business due to a “gang” there, asserting the musician was past boundaries.
It was a matter of “regret” that Rahman, “who has scaled Himalayan heights” by profitable hearts internationally, couldn’t get good movies as a result of some individuals have been spreading rumours about him within the Hindi cinema business, Municipal Administration Minister SP Velumani mentioned in a tweet.
Rahman had earlier claimed there’s a “gang” within the Hindi movie business that’s stopping him from getting work.
His feedback got here amidst a raging insider versus outsider debate in Bollywood following actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s premature demise final month.
“Those acting against our Rahman, who has taken music which has no boundaries beyond borders and brought fame to India, are condemnable. I express my wholehearted support to him,” he mentioned within the Tamil tweet.
During an interview with Radio Mirchi earlier, the Oscar-winning music director was requested the rationale for doing much less Hindi movies.
Rahman, who has a number of the greatest hits from movies like Rangeela, Dil Se and Taal to his credit score, had mentioned there was “misunderstanding” between him and filmmakers as some individuals have been spreading “false rumours” about him within the business.
However, he had sought to place issues behind, when he mentioned “let’s move on” on Sunday, after filmmaker Shekhar Kapur mentioned Rahman’s “problem” was he has received the Oscars, which “is the kiss of death in Bollywood.” “It proves you have more talent than Bollywood can handle,” Kapur had mentioned in Twitter.
To this, Rahman had replied that “lost money comes back, fame comes back, but the wasted prime time of our lives will never come back. Peace! Let’s move on. We have greater things to do.”
