AR Rahman slams the remix culture amidst Neha Kakkar- Falguni Pathak spat

Singer Neha Kakkar, who recently released a song titled 'O Sajna', recieved severe backlash from netizens who believe that she has ruined Falguni Pathak's classic track 'Mene Payal Hai Chankayi' by remixing it. Amidst this, legendary composer AR Rahman has also shared his take on the remix culture which has gained popularity in recent years.

Pointing out how absurd this concept is, Rahman stated that remixes distort the original idea of a composer. He told India Today, "The more I see, the more it is distorted. The intention of the composer gets distorted. People say, 'I am reimagining.' Who are you to re-imagine? I am also very careful about taking someone else's work. You have to be respectful and I think it is a grey area, we need to sort it out."

AR Rahman is currently busy with the promotions of Mani Ratnam's upcoming film 'Ponniyin Selvan' and giving example of his collaboration with the acclaimed filmmaker, he said, "The other day, we had the Telugu music launch and the producers said, every song that you two (Mani Ratnam and AR Rahman) make, sounds fresh now because it is all done in digital mastering. It already has that quality and everyone appreciates it. So, if I need to do that, I need to recreate it. Of course, people take permission, but you cannot take something recently and remake it again. It feels weird."
