    Default Jagjit Singh Challenges Rahman to Compose Ghazals

    Follow us on Social Media









    While AR Rahman’s fans are happy and proud after he got a Golden globe and Oscar nominations for his Slumdog Millionaire soundrack. But back home in India people are still critical. Director Mahesh Bhatt thinks Slumdog Millionaire is clearly not Rahman’s best work.

    Ghazal maestro Jagjit Singh criticized Rahman saying,”

    “It is a fact, just that nobody is saying it, but everybody knows…Rahman josh mein aa kar ghazal banayee (If he has it in him, he should compose ghazals),” Jagjit Singh said on asked about Rahman’s music in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’.
    The ghazal maestro has accused Rahman of replicating western tunes; and he is also not impressed with Gulzar’s poetry.

    “What to say if Gulzar writes such songs. He can say ‘no’ if he wants. He is a man from great literary background,” an angred Singh said.
    However, his fellow ghazal singer - Pankaj Udhas does not agree. “Rahman is a very talented artist; and yes, he can compose very good ghazals too,” Udhas said.

    Bollywood is, however, divided on Jagjit Singh’s response to Slumdog’s music.

    Popular singer Alka Yagnik feels Bollywood music is situtional. “Music connected to films is situational, Music directors are asked to compose songs accoding to the script of the film.”

    While Yagnik feels Bollywood music is made accoding to the script, singer-composer Sonu Nigam completely agrees with Jagjit Singh. “Bollywood music is not real music, so that way I agree with Jagjitji, but Rahman is very talanted,” he said.


    Well Im sure Rahman is up for that challenge too. He is a talented musician and he can go further than this.
