Has AR Rahman replaced Shahrukh Khan as Salman Khan’s arch rival?
At a recent event, Sallu miyaan shocked everyone by calling Rahman an ‘average’ music composer. Though the Dabangg Khan later clarified on Twitter that he was just joking, we know the superstar doesn’t get cheeky without any reason
Looks like Shahrukh Khan is no longer Salman Khan’s jaani dushman. We don’t mean it literally but for now someone else seems to be the Jai Ho actor’s arch rival. We all know about Salman’s not-so-flattering comment about musical genius AR Rahman. At the launch of Rahman and Kapil Sibal’s music album Raunaq, the Kick star called the Mozart of Madras ‘average’. While many were puzzled with his out of the blue remark, not many are aware of the fact that SK shares not-so-great rapport with the Highway music director. And that’s the reason why he took a jibe at Rahman. We hear Sallu had approached the talented music composer for his film Ek Tha Tiger and later even accepted the offer. However, AR Rahman backed off the project at the last minute leaving director Kabir Khan in a fix. That’s not all! Apparently, Kabir repeatedly requested Rahman to complete the songs but his efforts failed. On the flip side, the music maestro asked the makers of Salman starrer to shoot the songs on a demo and told them we would finish the music later. When SK learnt about the same, he thought Oscar winner composer was being unprofessional. Since then, the two have been sharing not-so-friendly vibes.Click here to read more
