Academy award winner AR Rahman recently faced a lot of criticism from music lovers for performing a lot of Tamil songs at his concert at Wembley. And, now, the ‘Mozart of Madras’ has finally broken his silence on the matter. While speaking to NDTV, he said that he has always put in his best efforts and is grateful to his fans for supporting him.

“We try our best. We try to be honest. I love the way how people have supported for all these years without them I’m nothing. I’m grateful to all of them,” he added.

Well, we must say that this is quite a dignified response and is bound make fans love ARR even more.

Interestingly, shortly after the row, ARR’s sister had rubbished all reports of there being a problem at the concert and said that it was a pretty enjoyable affair.

“I don’t know why it is becoming such a big thing. It didn’t even happen in the stadium. Why after the show, I don’t know? Because if something like that would have happened, I would have posted it on Facebook or Twitter. It never happened. Nobody raised anything at that time and I don’t know why this is happening now,” she had told a TV channel.

Similarly, reacting to the controversy, singer Chinmayi too had come out in support of ARR and said that nearly 65 percent of the playlist was in Hindi.

“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,” she had added.

    The same Tamilians get angry and offended if visitors from other states speak in languages other than Tamil in their state. But here Rahman was in UK, so why was he not speaking in English to the audiences. Hypocrisy.
