The Oscar winning musician A R Rahman received Hridaynath Mangeshkar award in Mumbai on Monday.
On the occasion of the 5th Hridaynath Mangeshkar award ceremony Composer A R Rahman shared, “I am a fan of Lata Mangeshkar because coming from the generation of 90’s when music making was done with lots of limitations. In those extraordinary situations when you look at light beyond such as Hridyanath Mangeshkar has made. The Mangeshkar family being a flag on music from generations and inspiring the whole country is not an easy thing.”
Sharing the thoughts on A R Rahman veteran director Subhash Ghai shared, “When I was travelling for movie Taal recce (research) I heard the movie Roja songs in loop in the car and asked the driver who is the composer. When I returned to Mumbai the first thing I did was that I called up A R Rahman and asked him to compose the song for Taal. It took 70 nights to make the music. Rahman is just not a big celebrity but a great soul too.”
Filmmaker Subhash Ghai presented the 5th Hridaynath Mangeshkar award to A R Rahman on the 78th Birthday of the well known composer and the younger brother of Legendary singers Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle.
