AR Rahman: Highway has a beautiful Indie vibe
Yogen Shah

The music maestro is all set to impress us again with Highway. And here’s what he has to say about it…

AR Rahman, who is composing the music for Alia Bhatt-Randeep Hooda starrer Highway, is certainly going to impress everyone across the globe, yet again. The master of music has even composed a groovy western dance number for Highway, along with crooning in Punjabi the movie. To this, he says, “Singing in Punjabi wasn’t difficult as I’d composed the tune, and improvised a lot. All I had to do was work on the pronunciations.”

Rahman had composed the music for Imtiaz’s Rockstar before and now, Highway. The composer told a popular daily, “If Rockstar had a ‘big-event’ feeling to it, Highway has a beautiful indie vibe. So while composing, I focused only on a singular emotion, not an ensemble one and the result is very fulfilling.”

While the music maestro has fans all over the world, Rahman doesn’t do what he does, for recognition. He says, “I don’t need the money or the awards. I don’t need the world. Music, even after so many years, brings me such joy, matched only by the satisfaction of a chef who has just laid his signature dish on the table.”

Well, one thing’s for sure- this music maestro won’t care about the reviews he gets for Highway. Nonetheless, we’re sure that the music is going to be awesome, as always. Right, BollywoodLifers?Subscribe to me on YouTube
