AR Rahman reacts to Tamil Songs Controversy at IIFA Awards



Indian Music composer A R Rahman has responded to the controversy that took place recently when some fans walked out of the concert following a few Tamil songs.

“I love the way people have supported (me) for all these years. Without them, I am nothing. I am grateful to all of them,” he said on the sidelines of IIFA here.

“We try our best. We try to be honest,” he added after being asked about all the hate on social media.

Rahman’s recent performance at the IIFA Rocks event here was a hit with his fans and the musician said he loved the way people received him.

“I think it (IIFA Rocks) went well. We were terrified because it was raining but the band was very courageous and so were the singers. The audience enjoyed the concert,” he said.

Rahman was also honoured with a special award for completing 25 years in the industry at the IIFA awards, which will be aired on Colors channel.

Rahman recently performed the ‘Netru Indru Nalai’ concert at Wembley in the United Kingdom. However, a few fans attending the musical night seemed to have felt “out of place” and even “walked out” from the show complaining that most of the songs were in Tamil and not in Hindi. A few disappointed fans even took to Twitter to vent their anger with a few even asking for a refund as they claimed to be unaware that the concert would have more Tamil songs over his Hindi hits, reports TOI.
