“A.R. Rahman knows nothing of ghazals”
January 28, 2009

Lashing out strongly on the present generation of music directors and filmmaker, ghazal singer Jagjit Singh asks, “What does AR Rahman know about ghazals? He will never use a ghazal in his films. All they do is pick up tunes from the West.” He rues that there is no poetry in the lyrics these days and language used is tapori, which is a mix of Hindi and English.

A.R. Rahman

The singer says that the audience for the ghazal form of music has only increased over the last few years. He added that he tries to improvise on this ghazals and this brings a lot of audience to his concerts. Interestingly, the singer only performs for a cause nowadays.
