Hockey Men's World Cup an­them a tribute to In­dia: Rah­man

Financial Chronicle - - NONE OF MY BUSINESS -

AR Rah­man is not new to an­thems but when he was ap­proached to cre­ate a song for Hockey Men's World Cup, he wanted the idea of the coun­try and cul­ture to come across.

'Jai Hind In­dia', penned by Gulzar and fea­tur­ing Shah Rukh Khan and Nayan­thara, is a tribute to In­dia, the dou­ble Os­car-win­ner said at the launch of the song. "The video and the song has to go beyond hockey. When peo­ple watch some­thing they watch it for many things. When you do some­thing for sports, we felt we should in­clude cul­ture also. The song is a tribute to In­dia," Rah­man told re­porters here.

He said hav­ing done an­thems for films like "La­gaan", '127 Hours" and "Mil­lion Dol­lar Arm", he had an idea about the world he wanted to cre­ate through his mu­sic.

"Hockey is a na­tional game and I wanted to give my heart to it," he said. - PTI
