AR Rahman talks about Lal Salaam.

AR Rahman shared the thoughts he had when he first heard the script of Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth’s Lal Salaam and how it all changed when he watched the film.

AR Rahman revealed he was initially skeptical about Lal Salaam. The music director has composed music for the Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth film. The Tamil movie also stars Rajinikanth in a cameo role. At a recent event for the film, Rahman opened up about working on the film and confessed he felt Lal Salaam was ‘boring’ and ‘preachy’ when he first heard the script. However, it all changed when he watched the film.

As reported by Indian Express, Rahman said, “When Aishwarya first told me the story of the film… I thought ‘This film is going to be boring da’. I thought it would be preachy. Until I saw the film… The scenes that I thought would be cringy and preachy were handled very thoughtfully and were heartwarming. I then asked her who wrote dialogues for the movie, and she said, ‘I wrote and Appa changed a bit.’ I realised it was his wisdom. Because he respects everything, he has researched well and has said many rare things.”

He addressed Aishwaryaa seated in the crowd and said, “Daughter of the superstar. It is very very difficult to be his daughter. I understand what you are going through. Whatever you do, you face criticism. You get criticised for dancing, making films, wearing certain clothes… despite all that you have proved yourself.”

Slated to release on February 9, Lal Salaam is directed by Aishwaryaa Rajinikanth. Although Rajinikanth has a cameo, the film is lead by Vishnu Vishal, Vikranth, Dhanya Balakrishnan, Vivek Prasanna, and KS Ravi Kumar.

Lal Salaam stirred a debate over the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in music composition. Renowned composer AR Rahman employed AI technology to recreate the voices of late playback singers Bamba Bakya and Shamul Hameed for a song in the film. Addressing the backlash, AR Rahman clarified that the process had been undertaken with prior permission from the late singers’ families, who were duly compensated. He emphasised that technology, when used responsibly, is not a threat or nuisance.
