AR Rahman recently shared the amount of hard work that goes into the making of one song. Hours after the release of the recreated version of his song, ‘Masakali,’ Rahman uploaded a post asking his fans to listen to the original composition instead.
‘Masakali 2.0’ is a revamped version of the song ‘Masakali’ from the Sonam Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan movie, ‘Delhi-6’ (2009). The new version is sung by Tulsi Kumar and Sachet Tandon, with music by Tanishk Bagchi.
Sharing a note hours after its release, Rahman wrote on Twitter, “No short cuts, properly commissioned, sleepless nights, writes and re-writes. Over 200 musicians, 365 days of creative brainstorming with the aim to produce music that can last generations. A team of a Director, a Composer and a Lyricist supported by actors, dance directors and a relentless film crew.”
Rahman also recalled how ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ (2018) director Danny Boyle had called him from the Toronto Film Festival after witnessing the positive response for the film’s music, reports the Hindustan Times.
In other movements, the star recently collaborated with the ‘We Are The World’ creator Ken Kragen along with global artistes like Natasha Bedingfield and Cody Simpson for a new initiative called ‘Hands Around The World.’ The project is aimed at raising awareness about the irreversible perils of climate change and was launched on Earth Day earlier this week.
“I am hopeful that our combination of using music and technology on this project will have this message resonate with the masses. It has been a pleasure to collaborate with so many incredible musicians from around the world,” the composer told the media.
