A.R. Rahman is human, not god: Vishal Dadlani
Bollywood music composer Vishal Dadlani is defending Oscar winner A.R. Rahman against all negative comments for the latter's composition "Jiyo Utho Bado Jeeto", which is the official song for the upcoming Commonwealth Games.
"The only infallible one is god, who sends music to us all. Everyone else is human, including Rahman. We're all allowed off days. Be nice. All you doubters, and haters, please understand that Rahman has done more for music and India's international image than almost anyone else," Dadlani of music director duo Vishal-Shekhar posted on Twitter.
Rahman, who is said to have charged over Rs.5 crore to compose the song, is receiving flak for lack of any catchy phrase a la 'Waka Waka'.
Nevertheless, a lot of his fans are also supporting him.
Dadlani is looking forward to meeting Rahman on the sets of Zee TV's "Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Singing Superstar".
"Today's guest on 'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa...' is the man himself, Mr. A.R. Rahman. Oddly, I've never met him before! Can't wait," he posted.
While Dadlani is one of the judges on the show, Rahman will be a special guest in one of the upcoming episodes.
