I feel the desire to give back: A.R.Rahman

Grammy and Academy Award-winning musician A.R. Rahman has racked up an impressive list of accomplishments. Now, the music maestro, who turned 52 on January 6, feels the desire to give back and nurture some of the younger generations.

Rahman has delivered multiple chartbusters in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, English, and Persian films. The founder of the KM Music Conservatory hasn’t restricted himself to just music, he has also got into the director’s chair for Le Musk, among other things.

Asked if he would like to achieve more, Rahman told IANS in an exclusive interview, “I feel the desire to give back, nurture some of the younger generations, and also spend time learning and refining many things I don’t know.”

He has also been busy hunting for “India’s most authentic voice” on his digital show ARRived. After judging ARRived, he will be seen as a coach of The Voice India. It seems like he has grown fond of singing-based reality shows.

“I like some of them. It’s really beautiful to see the new generation of Indian talent. It gives me inspiration to write new things,” he said in the email interview.    - IANS
