Recently, AR Rahman revealed in an interview as to why he does fewer projects in the Hindi Film industry than Tamil industry. He composed the music for all songs of Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Dil Bechara, and in his latest interview he talked about a gang spreading false rumours about him. He also shared that Dil Bechara director Mukesh Chhabra told him that many people asked him not to approach AR Rahman, telling him stories after stories. Now, Simi Garewal expressed her shock that AR Rahman is being shunned by Bollywood camps. Meanwhile, sound designer Resul Pookutty replied to Shekhar Kapur’s tweet revealing that he almost had a breakdown as nobody gave him work in Hindi films after winning Oscar.
Yesterday, Shekhar Kapur tweeted about AR Rahman, and how it was because he got an Oscar, that he stopped getting work in Bollywood. He wrote, “You know what your problem is @arrahman? You went and got #Oscars . An Oscar is the kiss of death in Bollywood. It proves you have more talent than Bollywood can handle ..” Oscar winning sound designer Resul Pookutty also replied to the tweet and shared he didn’t get work in the Hindi film industry after winning the Oscar. “Dear @shekharkapurask me about it, I had gone through near breakdown as nobody was giving me work in Hindi films and regional cinema held me tight after I won the Oscar... There were production houses told me at my face ”we don’t need you” but still I love my industry,for it....,” wrote Resul Pookutty.
Meanwhile, Simi Garewal expressed her shock that a globally renowned musician such as AR Rahman is being shunned by Bollywood camps. She tweeted, “It's contemptible & disgraceful that a globally renowned maestro @arrahmanis being shunned through a planned contentious campaign by Bollywood camps. What is going on here?? Am shocked..but then maybe I'm not..”

While speaking to Radio Mirchi, AR Rahman said, “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.” ALSO READ: Dil Bechara Musical Tribute To Sushant Singh Rajput: AR Rahman's Melodious Vocals For Sushant Singh Rajput Will Leave You Misty Eyed- VIDEO
