Imtiaz Ali Says ‘Gaalis’, Jokes Keep His Bond ‘Strong’ With AR Rahman: ‘Onlooker Might Wonder How Could…’

Imtiaz spoke about his bond with AR Rahman.

Imtiaz Ali opened up about his bond with music legends AR Rahman and Mohit Chauhan.

Imtiaz Ali and AR Rahman’s creative collaborations have always resulted in chart-topping soundtracks. Add Mohit Chauhan to that mix and you have a guaranteed iconic album. Over the years, Mohit, Rahman and Imtiaz have collaborated on several projects such as Tamasha, and Highway and now, they are working on Diljit Dosanjh starrer Amar Singh Chamkila.

Talking about their camaraderie and collaborations, Imitiaz told Fever FM, “The entire process of making the songs in my film primarily involves three people, Rahman sir, Mohit and me. So what keeps us reuniting with each other? Well, we are informal with each other, and that’s why we come back together and work again. We have a lot of fun together. We joke and use gaalis and that’s what keeps our bond strong. An onlooker might wonder how could we talk to each other in that manner.”

During the interview, Imtiaz recalled the making of Ranbir Kapoor starter Rockstar’s soundtrack, especially the Sheher Mein Hoon Main Tere song. “When we wanted to make the song, the brief that we gave Rahman sir was ‘Ek kharab gaana banana hai (we have to make a bad song).”

Imtiaz added, “The song is bizarre. The lyrics are vague and there is no sur aur taal (there’s no melody). I told him ‘Aisa gana jo UP Bihar mein kamaal kar de (Make a song that takes the states of UP and Bihar by storm).’ Rahman sir would go like ‘Okay, okay!’”

Imtiaz and AR Rahman’s collaboration on Rockstar is one of their most iconic and talked about works. They are now working together on the soundtrack of Amar Singh Chamkila, starring Diljit Dosanjh and Parineeti Chopra. The film will feature both Diljit and Parineeti singing live. Parineeti Chopra said that she has sung around 15 songs in the upcoming film.
