AR Rahman: Whenever there is Superstar Rajinikanth’s release is around the corner, there will be huge anticipation built around it. Right from the posters to the music to the trailers, everything garners wide attention from people across the country. Thus, there will be immense pressure among the makers to deliver their best. Even music maestro AR Rahman is no exception. In a recent interview, Rahman stated that working for Rajini’s film was like a hell.
Rahman worked for many Rajinikanth films like Muthu, Narasimha, Shivaji, Robot, Lingaa and 2.0. While interacting with one of the Youtube channels, Rahman said that it was like a hell working for Rajini’s films because of the tight deadlines.
Rahman said that in those days, he used to get Rajini’s film rushes in March, and the makers used to ask him to give the output with a span of a few months saying that the film is slated for Diwali release. Rahman was supposed to do songs, BGM, and the other re-recording works in such a short span of time. On top of that, there used to be a lot of power cuts at Rahman’s studio at that time. Thus, he used to work with two generators to finish the works on time.
The star composer said that that is the reason why he hates festival release culture because it creates immense pressure on the technicians to give output in a short span of time. He added that the situation is better now as he is working at leisure, as per his schedule.
