AR Rahman- Salman incident

Known for his bold and straightforward demeanor, Salman Khan once humorously labeled the music maestro AR Rahman as an ‘average composer’, playfully poking fun at himself. However, Rahman’s response to the jest was witty and amusing, devoid of any rudeness.

In a recently surfaced video from a 2014 event featuring AR Rahman and Salman Khan, the latter humorously dubbed Rahman as an ‘average’ composer, despite Rahman’s significant achievement of being the first Indian to win two Oscars in 2009. Salman playfully expressed his eagerness to collaborate with Rahman, even attempting to hold his hand, and jokingly inquired about their potential collaboration, saying, “Humare liye kab kaam karoge?” (When will you work with me?)

Salman Khan’s query to AR Rahman

In the subsequent part of the video, the host encouraged AR Rahman to address Salman’s inquiry about a potential collaboration. Rahman’s retort was cleverly sarcastic, indicating that if Salman wanted to work with him, he should produce films that align with Rahman’s personal preferences: “He (Salman) will have to do the kind of films I like, only then I’ll work with him.”

The video triggered diverse reactions from online users. Some viewers interpreted Rahman’s body language as a sign of his disinterest in Salman Khan. For instance, a user noted that when Salman offered a handshake after the ‘average’ remark, Rahman kept his hands in his pockets, leading Salman to forcefully take his hand out. Another commenter believed that Salman’s comment about Rahman being ‘average’ was likely intended as sarcasm, which, truthfully, appeared to be the case.

AR RAhman’s work loss in Bollywood

In 2020, AR Rahman disclosed that false rumors spread by a specific group within the industry led to a decline in film offers for him. He admitted that he opted for darker film projects as a response to the efforts of this group to impede his career prospects.

AR Rahman clarified, “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 (for Dil Bechara), 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.”

Netizens or CID??

Internet users also shared their thoughts on the video. One comment stated, “AR Rahman doesn’t like Salman Khan – body language reveals everything. Salman attempted to shake hands with ARR after calling him average, but ARR kept his hands in his pocket, so Salman forcefully took ARR’s hands out. ARR didn’t appreciate Salman labeling him ‘average’ when he literally won an Oscar award.” Another comment mentioned, “Rahman literally composed music for Salman’s Yuvraaj. They have already collaborated.” Another remark read, “If ARR is average then Salman is shit.”
