A R Rahman gets trolled online after audience from his recent concert walkout

Music Composer A R Rahman was at the popular Wembley stadium in London for a concert. The music composer was to perform his top hit songs at the concert when an unexpected thing happened at the concert. Few groups walked out from the concert after knowing that the list of songs had majorly Tamil songs and no Hindi songs composed by him. The audience expressed their displeasure over that and walked out from the stadium which was totally unexpected by the organisers.

After the incident was reported by the media, netizens trolled A.R.Rahman for including only Tamil songs and no Hindi songs in the list of songs he was to perform in front of the huge crowd. While few were in support of A.R.Rahman saying he was an Indian first and a Tamilian later, few netizens had a different thought.

It was a huge debate online after the incident at Wembley Stadium and became a hot topic soon. Singer and dubbing artist Chinmayi Sripada had a strong message for those who were trolling A.R.Rahamn. Chinmayi wrote, “When Rahman sir wins 2 Oscars and creates history, he is “An Indian”, but 7-8 Tamil gaane kya gaa liye aap naraaz hote ho. What yaar? The show was called ‘Netru Indru Naalai’, had 65% Hindi songs (Set List is out there). Music knows no boundaries/language. Chase the American dream, your kids can Spanish; Live in the UK that once colonised India –  but cry foul when a when you hear Tamil songs.”

A.R. Rahman hasn’t yet responded on this issue yet and the whole world now wants to hear him speak on this.

    Good that th e British left India early otherwise

    The title of the concert was in Tamil. Why would you expect Hindi songs in it? No southeners complained and walked out because there were more Hindi songs! You wouldn’t go to an event with a title in Spanish and then complain there was no English in it. Some small minded, bigoted and intolerant Hindi supremist twits.

    All these years I have been foolish trying to rationalize with the stupid Hindians who don’t understand India is a diverse country with many languages and cultures and there is no place for for Hindi hegemony. Then I figured out I cannot be rational with irrational people. So all I can say is f..k Hindi and its imposition.

    Music is music irrespective of language. To walk out on some one just because they are not singing in your mother tongue is disrespectful to the artist.

    Pinkvilla, it’s shocking that you distort the truth and come up with a blatantly false heading to misguide people. Your statement makes it seem that Rahman sang only Tamil tracks at a concert!! That is absolutely false. He sang 16 full Hindi tracks and 12 full Tamil tracks and one mixed medley in both languages. In spite of Tamil being his mother tongue, he sang more Hindi songs to appease his Hindi speaking Bollywood fans. It’s sad that a small section of his disgruntled fans chose to walk out because they could not ‘tolerate’ him singing twelve tamil songs! Music transcends language barriers and it’s sad that the Hindi speaking crowd displayed such blatant language chauvinism . Some of his best works are in Tamil and it’s sad that his ‘so called’ fans were not willing to listen to his Tamil songs! How narrow minded can people be?

      Honey, you haven’t really been south have you? There are far more handsome, genuine, well-educated, rational men down south. Women are treated with respect and many households are run by the matriarchs. For the rest of the ignorant fools – South India consists of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andaman & Nicobar, Pondicherry, Telangana, Lakshwadeep, Andhra Pradesh. Hindi is not a national language it is the official language of the Union government. India chose not to have a national language for the same reason we have a nonsensical debate about it.

    No wonder scenes like these in Tubelight went over people’s heads. Salman asks Guo to speak Hindi in front of the Army officer to show that he is Indian. Guo speaks Chinese instead and later tells Salman that he is not a parrot who will do as told. Get it now?? Why should Indians have to speak Hindi to prove to other Indians that they are Indian?? India is a huge diverse country where a multitude of languages and dialects are spoken. There is no such thing as ‘national’ language! Hindi is the official language, meaning it is used for official purposes, also English.

    There’s no such thing as ‘national language’ in the Indian constitution! There are official languages hindi English and other languages like tamil are officially recognized! Please respect the constitution and not your unfounded rabid pro-hindi sentiments ! It’s a free country you can’t impose your views on others! UP Bihar people should first focus on reducing crime rates and overpopulation in their states. Look at model states like tamil nadu, karnataka, kerala we are developed states, not overpopulated, relatively safe for women, creating jobs, paying taxes, no communal riots! South India should breakoff and become its own country so we can be free of the hindi obsessed illiterate northies!

      Hindi is the ‘official’ language of India, not the ‘national’ language! First off, that that right!! Secondly, India does not belong to Hindi speaking North Indians. Indian belongs to Indians!! It is sadly this very concept that hateful people like you fail to grasp! No wonder this country is in this state today. Really sad. Pinkvilla, I cannot believe you can post such a horrible hateful comment! Otherwise you guys censor stuff all the time. Going to not publish this either???
