Academy Award-winning composer A.R. Rahman came live on Instagram with Malayalam filmmaker Blessy to celebrate the success of their film Aadujeevitham — The Goat Life on Friday.

The composer thanked his fans for showering their love on the film. The original soundtrack of the Prithviraj Sukumaran-starrer, featuring five tracks, was also released by the makers on Friday.


As live viewers kept requesting Rahman to sing the song Periyone from The Goat Life, he revealed that he had a sore voice because of travelling. “Yesterday was the premiere of Chamkila in Mumbai. Then I came down to Chennai and spent half-a-day with my family to celebrate Eid,” he said, adding that he finally got a break from his busy schedule.

Talking about his experience of working with Blessy, Rahman said, “He did not even want a full album. He just wanted one song. Then I went with him to the location and kept saying ‘can we do this’ and ‘can we do that’. Everything just came together. I think it was a great intention of a movie.”

Heaping praises on Blessy, Rahman continued, “He sacrificed 10 years of his movie career working only on Aadujeevitham. It’s commendable.”

When a viewer asked Rahman about using S. P. Balasubrahmanyam’s voice in the album using AI, he responded, “If I want to use someone’s voice using AI, I would always ask for permission from their family first.”

Answering a query about collaborating with Imtiaz Ali in the future, Rahman said he is always open to work if Imtiaz wants him.
