The launch of Raunaq, a musical collaboration between A.R Rahman and Union Minister Kapil Sibal yesterday left a bitter taste in everyone’s mouth after Salman Khan’s snide comments on Rahman came to light.
The actor who is known for his satirical vein of talking went slightly overboard at the event. According to a Bollywood source present at Taj Land’s End Bandra yesterday, Salman shocked the audiences when he called Rahman an ‘average’ artist. While the Oscar winning composer was jaw-dropped at this remark, he refused to react. If this was any less, the actor went on to state that the only connection between them is ‘Jai Ho‘.
But Salman, should we remind you that the title ‘Jai Ho‘ which was originally reserved by Rahman for a project he had in his mind was gracefully given to Sohail Khan after he approached the composer for his film.
Such antics are Salman’s signature ofcouse. The actor after realizing his word vomit was a little out of humor, tried to mend fences by offering a handshake which Rahman did not reciprocate to but surely maintained his cheery smile.
Well, Salman after that, Rahman may definitely think twice before working with you!
