AR Rahman found himself in the eye of the storm recently following an episode when he congratulated and conveyed his best wishes to the music director of Dam 999, Ousephachan, who has been nominated for the Oscars. At the music launch of Ek Deewana Tha in Agra, he mentioned that when he heard  the news he was delighted as he knows Ousephachan and thinks that his work for the film was brilliant and therefore he deserves a win.

Having been criticized for his comments, AR Rahman released a press statement saying that he was hurt because his comments had been taken out of context to create a scandal. Being a Tamilian himself he said that the Tamils and their unflagging support have been instrumental to his success and he will never forget that. Thanks to his involvement in Hollywood projects for the past three years, he did not realize the gravity of the Mullaiperiyar issue between Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

AR Rahman said that he supported former president Abdul Kalam's stand on the issue as he had suggested the interlinking of the rivers to avoid problems. ARR added that the world was watching India's rapid growth with respect and this is thanks to our unity and we should always remain united.

ARR also wished his fans a Merry CHristmas and a Happy New Year before signing off.
