AR Rahman: ‘Rockstar’ is not my best work
For the first time ever, AR Rahman performed live for a film promotion event for Rockstar. An excerpt from a chat with the maestro..
Is Rockstar AR Rahman’s best album yet? The music maestro didn’t have a clear answer when we asked him that just after the Rockstar concert in Mumbai last evening. Trying to laugh it off, he said, “I don’t know. I’ve not done this kind of music before. But it’s teamwork again. There’s a lot of inspiration….

We thought we’ll make it more accessible to our Indian audience. Y’know, some people don’t care about rock and some people care about it too much. So, we had to find a balance in the music. Because it’s about a desi guy who becomes a rockstar not out of choice, but…(circumstances).”
