Lata Mangeshkar: A R Rahman bahot talented insaan hain. Ive sung very few songs for him. I love Jiya jale in Dil Se, Khamoshiyan gun-guna lagi (1 2 Ka 4) ,O paalan hare(Lagaan) and Luka chuppi(Rang De Basanti). A R Rahman and I came together for the first time for the evergreen Jiya jale in Mani Rathnams Dil Se.Then we collaborated for a prayer-song Ek tu hi bharosa in Boney Kapoor/Raj Santoshis Pukar.It was a very special song. Because I sang it on screen myself.But I must admit Jiya jale was a very special song too. It became such a rage. And Im asked to sing that song at every concert that I go to.
She reminisces about the pleasure of singing for Rahman. I think he was a little intimidated by me when we did Jiya jale in Chennai. But he allowed me to do it my own way. And when I started humming an impromptu alaap at the end of the tune, he told me to just go on . He recorded that as well. Subsequently I recorded other songs with Rahman including O paalan hare in Lagaan and Door kahin ek aam ki baghiya in Zubeida. My duet Lukachuppi with Rahman for Rakeysh Mehras Rang De Basanti became so popular. Its rare nowadays to get a good song like Luka chuppi.
Prasoon Joshi: Artistes and humanbeings like Rahman are rare.All my work with Rahman is very special to me. Much as I enjoyed writing fun songs like Masti ki paathshala and Masakali I cherish exploring the spiritual side of my creativity in the songs Arziyaan and Zariya(the latter for Coke Studio). May God bless him with some of the happiness that he has given us through his music.
Ayushmann Khurrana: A R Rahman is a living legend.He has always been ahead of our times. His melodies have a phenomenal range. Theyre always filled with surprises.He carries in himself the sure signs of a master composer. My favourite movie soundtracks of A R Rahman are Dilli 6, Rangeela and Rockstar. I wish the most revered music director of our times a happy birthday.
Kavita Krishnamoorthy: Hes a very talented and innovative music director. And a joy to work with. My favourite Rahman song is my own Tu hi re in Bombay.
