AR Rahman At The Launch Of 'Ta-Futures'

On Wednesday, April 8, T Series released a song titled ‘Masakali 2.0’ featuring Tara Sutaria and Sidharth Malhotra, a remix version of the original song ‘Masakali’ that featured in the 2009 Delhi 6. While the original composition by AR Rahman was a chartbuster, the new version is nothing short of a mess.

No shortcuts, properly commissioned, sleepless nights, writes and rewrites. Over 200 musicians, 365 days of creative brainstorming with the aim to produce music that can last generations.
