Usually, the musical maestro of Tollywood, Bollywood, and Hollywood, A.R Rahman stays out of controversies and he strictly follows dignified-silence-policy over various issues. A.R Rahman is one of those few artists who are only known for right reasons and because of their work which is loved by the masses and classes, both. We love his work and his sensibility as well, A.R Rahman is the one who made the entire Hollywood say Jai Ho and now he is raising his voice in the favour of Sultan Salman Khan who has recently faced mixed reactions from people for being appointed as the brand ambassador of Rio Olympics.
We spotted A.R Rahman and singer Manasi Scott at the Pele song launch and they looked happy and pretty chilled out for the grand event. It was good to see Rahman dressed up in funky casuals and formal mix attire, is he aiming at fashion industry too? Apart from his sleek style, A.R Rahman‘s support for Salman Khan got us pleasantly surprised. When Rahman was asked about the whole controversy related to Salman should be or not be the brand ambassador of Rio Olympics question popped out, Rahman politely gave an answer in a question. He said Salman Khan is a very popular face so why not?
Remember back in 2014, when Salman Khan and A.R Rahman were present at the launch of Union Minister Kapil Sibal‘s album, Raunaq which was composed by the Oscar winner Rahman, himself and Salman called him an ‘average’ performer? This witty joke left everyone shocked but Rahman didn’t backfire Salman‘s weird joke. And, now Rahman joins the group of people who would love to see Salman Khan as the brand ambassador of Rio Olympics.
Small world, indeed!
