Rockstar music tops international charts

Post Slumdog Millionaire and Satyameva Jayate, the Mozart of Madras AR Rahman has struck gold again with his new album for Imtiaz Ali’s new film starring Ranbir Kapoor

Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar grew into a mammoth project the moment AR Rahman’s name was associated with it – this was probably one of the best things to happen to the film. The genre of rock music used in the OST is not very popular in India, but Rahman’s magic has worked big time, not only here, but the world over. The album is now number one on the US World Charts and number two in UK Charts. This is a huge feat for a Bollywood film and the credit goes to Rahman, who has composed 14 spectacular songs that make for delightful listening. But the story goes that thanks to his busy schedule Rahman almost said no to the director. When Imtiaz approached Rahman, the maestro instantly said, “Oh my God, I have no time! There is no way I can do this, but I will do it. I want to do it.” At that time Rahman was in the thick of a hundred commitments – recording in LA, performing at concerts, jamming with SuperHeavy, writing for Hollywood, Bollywood and Tamil movies. But he agreed…and did his superlative best. Evidently Rahman’s instinctive reaction about the movie was right, as his work is now topping the charts not only in US and UK, but also in other parts of the world, including France, Germany and Australia. We are excitedly waiting to watch the film this November.
