Rahman on CNN-IBN – May 7th

May 7th, 9:30pm sounds like a perfect time to cheer people up and set them in the mood for the Assembly elections the next morning.

CNN-IBN will be telecasting an interview with A.R.Rahman, Chennai’s Pride (yeah, yeah, he’s gone far beyond that – more like India’s pride. But then, whenever someone one knows becomes really famous, you notice that the neighbouhood Aunties and Uncles, invariably, will be sharing the tiniest bit of news about that celebrity, don’t you? Same thing!) – no matter what sort of questions you ask the man, his modesty always accompanies his answers.

Rajeev Masand: Have you ever been embarrassed by the way a song has been filmed?

ARR: Yes, a lot of times. But, I guess, the people are intelligent enough now to know all that, what is personal and what is not, and what is done for the movie.

RM: Do you think Roja is your best work?

ARR: It’s probably my first good work. Like I said about Mani Ratnam who gave me my first good work. It brings back all those memories. It gave me the urge to go further and maintain quality work, crossing over to the North Indian audience with the film, lyrics which were never imagined before.

Mark your calendar!

    Super news!!

    I think the interviewer would have meant picturisation of Rahman’s songs by directors like SJ Surya, Bharathiraja and Balachandar who rip apart the picturisations!!!
