Over 200 musicians, 365 days of creative brainstorming with the aim to produce music that can last generations. A team of a Director, a Composer and a Lyricist supported by actors, dance directors and a relentless film crew.” – Lots of love and prayers A.R. Rahman.”
His fans also came out in his support and shared their rage on Twitter. A fan wrote, “Now we know what it takes to turn the most non violent man in the world angry. A whole bag-of-chiii.” Another wrote, “I am with you @arrahman sir. I will support only original songs unlike crap remixes and remakes.” One more commented, “Classic: A magic that can’t be recreated. This is what @arrahman is trying to tell u.”
The original song was from 2009 film Delhi-6 which included Abhishek Bachchan and Sonam Kapoor. It was made by Rahman, wrote by Prasoon Joshi and sung by Mohit Chauhan.
