“I had this in my mind on how to crack it because I was very objective about it, thinking whether patriotism will work or not. So, I was like, forget about the country, let’s do it as a personal song — like singing a song for one’s mother. That’s how it was created,” Earlier this year, Rahman had told IANS, while remembering the patriotic song ‘Maa Tujhe Salaam.’
“Dear AR sir, your mother was witness to your growth and success as a world-renowned music composer. Very sad to know that she is no more. May God give you and your family strength to overcome this loss. May her soul rest in peace! We share your grief,” one of the Twitter users wrote.
