In 2020, popular American singer Selena Gomez opened up about her desire to work with Oscar Award-winning composer AR Rahman. She also opened up about following the works of many Indian people. Now, AR Rahman has reacted to Selena Gomez's comment about working with him. Back in 2020, Selena said, "I love Bollywood music. The beats are absolutely sublime. I love AR Rahman’s work. I would love to work with him someday."
AR Rahman, in a recent interview, spoke about how musicians are confused these days and are unaware of how the management works in different countries. AR Rahman said, "I keep seeing all that stuff, but I think we people are confused, like where is my management. I just called my management and asked did Selena Gomez call you? Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Madonna, and all these people talking about me, but then I never get to see them because I am on the other side of the world. Sometimes we feel like the whole world is one because we all understand beats, we all understand grooves and hooks and music. So it feels good and in this whole divided world today, I feel like music is the one thing that is the magic left (sic)."
