So everyone saw the clip where Salman Khan publicly snubbed A R Rahman at a recent launch event by calling him an average musician. However, not many know why Sallu openly took a dig at the music composer. Even though Salman played off the entire incident on Twitter as a joke, asking if only he and Rahman have a sense of humour, I am told that there actually is some tension between the two – and it goes back to the time when they nearly worked on a film together. Here are the details!
The problem stems from the time when Salman had approached Rahman to do music for Ek Tha Tiger. The story goes that Rahman accepted the offer, but backed out at the very last moment. The timing was so bad that director Kabir Khan was practically begging him to take time out and finish the songs. However, in return, Rahman gave the team a strange suggestion that they should shoot the songs on a demo and he would finish the music later.
When Salman heard about it, he was naturally upset and found this behavior extremely unprofessional. Ever since then, things have been super awkward between the two of them… just like we saw on stage a few days ago at Kapil Sibal‘s event!
