Rahman a true Raanjhanaa: Dhanush
Mumbai: Dhanush, who is set to make his Bollywood debut with Anand L Rai's 'Raanjhanaa', minces no words in praising the Oscar-winning music composer of the film, A.R. Rahman, terming him a true Raanjhanaa.
Rahman has also composed music for Dhanush's Tamil film 'Mariyaan' releasing on May 31.
"According to me, Rahman sir is Raanjhanaa. He has given so much to the film. When you will watch the songs with the film you will understand what I am talking about," the 29-year-old said during a press conference for the film.
Hailing the music maestro Rahman for his ability to churn out equally good music for Tamil and Hindi cinema, Dhanush says what Rahman does is very tough.
"What I wonder about him how he strikes a balance, like when you listen to a Tamil song it sounds like a Tamil song and when you listen to a Hindi song it sounds so much like Bollywood. I don't know how he achieves that; it’s really tough. One should know both the cultures by heart to bring out this kind of perfection," he said.
Meanwhile, Sonam Kapoor, who is paired opposite Dhanush in the film, says the four times National Award winning music-composer has given her an "identity" with his music, making her feel "privileged" and "blessed".
Rahman also composed the music of Sonam's second film, 'Delhi 6', in 2009.
"He gave me an identity with his music, song and his melody. He adds life to everything he does because he is a true genius. He is a true master at his craft. I am just privileged and blessed that I have A.R Rahman giving music for my film," said the actress who is playing the character of a Muslim girl Zoya in the film.
The love story is slated for release on June 21 and has seven compositions by Rahman.
