Ace composer, AR Rahman is not often known to hobnob with other members of Bollywood’s music fraternity. This is both due to Rahman’s unique way of functioning and also the fact that he works out of his studio in Chennai. However, from what we hear, the introverted music maestro seems to have found a friend in fellow-composer Pritam.
The two had met recently at Shah Rukh Khan’s dinner party, which he had hosted for Apple CEO Tim Cook and were seen chatting up with each other about music and other things.
While the duo seemed to connect really well, Rahman recently took the first step in extending this camaraderie and invited Pritam to give a lecture at his music academy in Chennai.
A source reveals, “Rahman functions in a very different manner and so does Pritam.
