Music no longer a character in Bollywood movies, says Rahman
Academy Award-winning composer AR Rahman believes music should be treated as a character in films and not something that is dispensable.
"Music should become a character. In films like 'Rockstar' and 'Taal', they had music as a central force. If you treat it like a chewing gum, just one song or two songs and then spit it out, then that's what you get."
"When power comes and we want more money and more money, then you leave beautiful things out and you go to gross things. We need to invest a certain sense of spirituality, honesty, and love to make beautiful musicals," he added.
