'Language creates barriers; but music has no language"– it"s a famous quotation marked by ace musician Ustad Amjad Ali Khan. But actor Radharavi discords from this statement, as he strongly condemned A.R. Rahman. Recently, during the audio launch of a film titled Mandapam, actor Radharavi was more enraged against A.R. Rahman saying, 'I would like to make it clear that Rahman"s debut was Roja and not Slumdog Millionaire. He was introduced by Kavithalaya Productions, a Tamil film production company. But today, he has refused to acknowledge it by giving priorities merely to Hindi films.
Close sources have revealed that Radharavi on behalf of South Indian Artists Association had invited Rahman for a cordial event to honour his Oscar endeavour. Nevertheless, as Rahman never gave dates for this occasion, this naturally led Radharavi to vent his frustrations.
