Chennai’s very own Oscar winner A.R. Rahman, on Friday said he was “sorry” as the number he composed for the Commonwealth Games theme song ‘Yaaro India Bula Liya’ had attracted criticism from many quarters.
Rahman said, “I am sorry if I have let anybody down on this but defended the song saying ‘definitely I am proud of the composition and the anthem”.
“Of course, some people did not like it and it became a huge controversy,” he said. But later also self defended saying there was a positive reaction when the theme song was tested on people from different nationalities. “It had lovely feedback from Australia, England and all those places, who had not heard about the controversy and they loved the song,” he added.
It is not easy to satisfy everyone but “I will try my best” in future and added that he has realized that next time he should be more careful to compose music to satisfy both young and old generation.
