For the uninitiated, AR Rahman in his recent interview with Radio Mirchi said that he doesn’t say no to good movies, but he thinks there is a gang, which is spreading some false rumours, owing to some misunderstandings.
He added that when he had a conversation with Mukesh Chhabra, who told him people have been telling him not to go to Rahman.
