Oscar winner A.R. Rahman claimed that there is a gang that is spreading false rumours against him.
Speaking to Radio Mirchi, Rahman, who composed the music for Dil Bechara, starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Sanjana Sanghi and directed by Mukesh Chhabra, said he realised why he was not getting many offers from Bollywood after he had a chat with Chhabra.
The composer said he does not 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 said.
He said while there is a section of people who are expecting to see more of his work, there is another gang that is 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," he said.
