AR Rahman is my spiritual guru: Resul Pookutty
The Oscar Award-winning sound designer says once you make it big internationally, people in India think you’re too snobbish or expensive to hire. In an exclusive chat with BollywoodLife, Resul also talks about his projects including his Oscar-nominated film The Good Road, Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiiyaan, his relationship with master composer AR Rahman, and how Irrfan Khan had predicted he would have no takers in India…
He’s unassuming, accessible and cheerful – you wouldn’t think you’re speaking to an Academy Award-winner and virtuoso sound designer until you realise the depth of Resul Pookutty‘s knowledge and experience. And yet he has no airs and his answers are unrehearsed. When asked if the Slumdog Millionaire victory at the Oscars increased opportunities for him in Hollywood and also back home in India, he confesses, “I’m not getting any work in India, which is quite sad…people think I’m too snobbish or expensive because I’ve won an Oscar.” In the same vein, he says that he’s forgotten all about winning that so-coveted Academy award!
