Shashaa Tiru­pati ad­mires AR Rahman

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - Shreya Mukher­jee

Shashaa Tiru­pati idolises AR Rahman for more rea­sons than one. Hav­ing col­lab­o­rated with Rahman in both South In­dian and Hindi films, she feels a never end­ing urge to work with him again and again as she gets to learn some­thing new ev­ery sin­gle time.

“I ad­mire Rahman sir both for his art and the kind of in­di­vid­ual he is. His moral val­ues and out­look to­wards the world in­spire me. He is a very peace lov­ing per­son. You kind of im­bibe his qual­i­ties when you work with him. He has a huge in­flu­ence in my life,” says Shashaa, who has worked with him in films such as Kochadai­iyaan (2014), Lin­gaa (2014), , Mo­henjo Daro (2016) and Mom.

Shashaa con­sid­ers The Mozart of Madras one of her men­tors. “He doesn’t con­fine him­self but is ready to ex­per­i­ment, and he is al­ways break­ing norms. He is a rebel. The best part of work­ing with him is that he is re­spect­ful to the artists he is work­ing with. He gives breath­ing space to ev­ery­one and is open to their ideas. He has the ca­pa­bil­ity of ex­tract­ing the best out of ev­ery­one,” she adds.

Talk­ing about what is next on the cards with Rahman, Shashaa shares that they are in talks for a project but she re­fused to di­vulge any de­tails.
