Sukhwinder Singh REFUTES Ram Gopal Varma’s claims on ‘Jai Ho’ composition: “AR Rahman has composed the song, I have only sung it”

en Bollywood News Sukhwinder Singh REFUTES Ram Gopal Varma’s claims on ‘Jai Ho’ composition: “AR Rahman has composed the song, I have only sung it”

Singer Sukhwinder Singh claims that AR Rahman, not him, composed the Oscar-winning ‘Jai Ho’ from Slumdog Millionaire.

Earlier this week, filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma sparked confusion by claiming that singer Sukhwinder Singh composed the Oscar-winning song ‘Jai Ho’ from Slumdog Millionaire, not AR Rahman. However, Sukhwinder has refuted the filmmaker’s claims and credited Rahman for the song's music in an interview with Hindustan Times. He acknowledged singing the iconic track but credited Rahman's role as the composer.

"AR Rahman has composed the song, I have only sung it. Ram Gopal Varma ji koi chhoti hasti toh nahin hain, shayad unhe kuchh galat pata chala hoga," he stated. He clarified that any misinformation Varma might have received was unintentional. Sukhwinder Singh further elaborated on the song's creation process. He revealed that lyricist Gulzar wrote the song, which AR Rahman liked and subsequently composed in Sukhwinder's studio.

Rahman even presented the song to director Subhash Ghai for his film Yuvvraaj, starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif. However, Ghai felt the song wasn't a good fit for his vision.

For the unversed, in an interview with Film Companion, RGV recalled meeting when Ghai got upset with Rahman after he found that he hadn’t composed the song. RGV stated that the filmmaker even lashed at the composer and said, “I am paying you crores of rupees as my music director and you are making Sukhwinder make a tune for me. You have the guts to say that in front of me? If I want Sukhwinder, I’ll sign him. Who are you to take my money and make Sukhwinder do the music for me?'”

Meanwhile, AR Rahman is yet to comment on the matter.
