‘Shankar is still tough, jovial and quality-conscious’ – Rahman

When asked about their fruitful journey together from Gentleman (AR Rahman’s first association with Shankar) to 2.0, Rahman said, “Nothing has changed. It’s the same. Shankar is still tough, jovial and quality-conscious. And, he is always ahead of everyone. We’ve always wanted our audiences to feel excited, and we have concentrated on giving something new. Shankar is very passionate about his work. His commitment always inspires me. Also, he used to say that my work inspires him. So, it’s always mutual.”

Rahman joined forces with the Macedonian Symphony Orchestra and performed three songs from the album, including an unreleased track penned by late lyricist Na Muthukumar.

Speaking about his long-standing collaboration with Rahman, Shankar said, “The ‘Irumbile’ song from Enthiran is our most challenging work. It depicted the love between a machine and a woman, a never-seen-before situation in Tamil cinema. To create a new sound for that situation was quite challenging for Rahman. In 2.0, we have created another fresh track to showcase the love between two robots. Finding a unique sound has always been very tough for both of us. But Rahman always surprises me and comes up with inventive sounds every single time.”
